I just recently started making Kombucha. But I knew about it for at least 15 years. My mom used to make it all the time. Being a kid I could not bring myself to drink it because of the scoby. So until recently I bought it at a grocery store which was pretty spendy for one 16 oz bottle. I got hold of a scoby and made myself some. Flavored with Raspberry and blueberry. I prefer raspberry. It’s so easy to make. it’s so good and a lot cheaper to make plus all the benefits. Tray to ask around and see if someone can give you a scoby otherwise you can make your own.
With Cranberries in season right now, I make my own juice or Kampot. of course with all the benefits of drinking it without any extra ingredients I will take this over any Soda any day. Kampot is good hot, cold or warm and will go perfect with your Thanksgiving meal. And as you can tell the cute little Gingerbread village was made by my beautiful daughter!
2 gallons water
16 oz fresh cranberries
1 large orange peeled and sliced
