So you’ve made Kombucha or Water Kefir. Now what? Of course, you can drink it as is, but you can make it even more delicious with a second fermentation!
Be sure to remove your grains or SCOBY and start them in a fresh batch of sugared water or tea. The finished product is what you’re going to flavor.
1) You can use fresh fruit or juice. Be sure to wash your fruit well (organic is always preferable). Cut your fruit into chunks or slices. More surface area will help the flavor infuse faster. If using blueberries, crush them a bit first to crack the outer skin. Use 1 to 2 cups of fruit, depending on the flavor level you’d like.
If using juice, add a cup or more. The more juice you add, the less you will taste the Kombucha or Kefir. This can be to your taste, depending on how tart you want your finished product.
After a couple of days, your delicious elixir will be ready. Be careful when you open the finished product- it can become very fizzy, even more so than soda pop. Store in the refrigerator to stop the fermentation process.
Enjoy as is, or add to alcohol for a not-so-guilty cocktail!
The possibilities are endless, use your imagination!
