blog launch giveaway week, day four: kombucha


Kombucha may just be the cultured food that has gotten the most buzz as of late. You can find it in health food stores, farmer’s markets, and local breweries.

But kombucha has a long and rich history. It is no pop-culture fad, though it may be in our own culture.

Our family’s first foray into kombucha came from a store-bought bottle I picked up at the health food store. I brought it home, tasted it, and immediately fell in love. My skeptical husband said “No thanks.” when I offered him a taste.

Eventually he came around and loved it as much as I did, but neither of us liked the price. We found out we could make it at home for less than 20 cents per bottle and we were sold. Who knows how many gallons of our beloved “bucha” have come out of our kitchen since.


If you’re new to making this delicious beverage then you might want to start with the kombucha beginner’s how-to or maybe learn about choosing ingredients for your kombucha.

    I had a neighbor/friend who was the best kombucha maker ever, but I never tried to make it myself…I didn’t have too!!! She has moved since those days, and I miss the kombucha and her!! (Mostly her) So, I’d really be interested in the starter kit!
