Kumbucha: Last Call

So, it's already time to harvest my Kumbucha. I wanted to show you my favorite bottles I love to use for fermenting.  These bottles are easy to latch and you can't lose the lid.  Plus they look not as commercial as the other ones.  I just found these the other day while taking out the recycling (long overdue).  So this time I used them to put my fresh Kumbucha in.  The only down side for me is the jars are too tall for my dark pantry.  So for me, they have to sit on the counter.

My best friend and I first ran into these beautiful jars one spring.  Green Acres Market (health food store) holds farmers market the spring through fall.  There they have lots of sampling opportunities.  One of the many samples we tried was a local homebrewed soda called SodavieWe tried the strawberry lavender and ginger beer.  The strawberry lavender was so delicious we good one to take home with us.  Long story short if I would have run into the sodavie, I wouldn't have these wonderful jars.

I forgot to mention this in my first post, but if you want more info on cultured or fermented foods check out The Cultured Food Life, by Donna.  I mentioned her in an earlier post and forgot to give her credit.  I have her book too; it is wonderful.  It's chalked full of recipes to try to increase the good bacteria in your body. 

Anyways, I hope you have a good weekend. I’m off to start on our cold frame.

P.S. It's last call for the mother I have.  Comment if you want it because if there are no takers by Sunday night I am sending it to compost.
