One of the most common things I get asked is how to make Kombucha. At first it can seem overwhelming, but it’s really so easy once you get the hang of it. I am not going to go into the health benefits, you can research that for yourself. I will say that it has cured my addiction to dr. pepper, but really boasts of health benefits way beyond that. In short, it helps heal and balance gut health. There are a lot of super smart, science loving people that would love to explain it to you via the world wide web.
Therefore, I’ll stick to practical and share how easy it is to make. Here are pictures and my step by step process.
After day 10, you can place a straw in (under the scoby) and see if it’s reached your desired level of fermenting. If not, just let it sit until it has. We like ours at around 10-12 days. This can depend on the temperature in your house. If it’s warm the fermenting with go faster, so ours can vary based on the season.
AND THAT’S IT! You start back at step one to make your next brew. It’s really quite easy and we are totally addicted over here. We feel great when we have our daily kombucha. We usually have 1/2 to 1 bottle a day.
You know how mom’s tend to make chicken noodle soup when their kids are sick. Turns out mom really does know best. Okay, maybe not the canned soup with purplish chicken, BUT bone broth is really healing for the body. It coats our gut with healthy vitamins and minerals, helps heal it, and helps our bones absorb the nutrition they need.
It’s also delicious, and super easy to make!
Here’s how I do it. I usually buy a rotisserie chicken. After we have finished eating the meat, I set the remainder into the crockpot.
You might wake up in the morning to a house that smells like Thanksgiving. It’s kinda funny, but there are worse smells people.
