Kombucha has been around for centuries, though you may only have heard of it recently. Essentially a fermented sweet tea, it’s also a complex brew of bioactive compounds that could be good for your gut and your overall health. It’s expensive to buy, but very economical to make yourself – in this workshop you will learn all the parameters you need to control to make your own safely at home. You will leave with your very own Kombucha set up and ready to go. A 1.8l jar and SCOBY is included in the workshop price – for an additional cost you can upgrade to a 5L contintuous culture set up. We will also talk about what exactly is going on in that jar, and about the potential health benefits, both proven and theoretical. Unattended, kombucha will gradually turn to vinegar, so we’ll talk about developing your own delicious kombucha vinegars and I’ll also demonstrate how to make apple cider vinegar. There will be cake, and also an opportunity to try various vegetable ferments at the end.
Fermented foods are suitable for almost everyone. If you have a serious histamine allergy,however, they may not be for you. If you have a serious underlying health condition please consult your medical practitioner before signing up and have a chat with me first
