I made Kombucha tea when it first became a thing, probably close to 20 years ago.
It is really easy, but it was just too gross for me.
If it’s what I’m thinking about, they call it a mushroom, but it’s really a fungus.
It floats on top of the water, then after the tea is made, it’s about doubled in size so you can peal it apart to make 2 kombuchas - either make more tea, or pass it along to someone else.
I loved the idea & the health benefits, but just couldn’t stomach the whole thing. I do think making it yourself would be healthier than buying it bottled. I’d imagine it would lose something over time.
Yogurt is much more my speed. I’d love to do more of that kind of thing, but I just don’t have the time.
I work a full time job, then I freelance on the side.
As for the yogurt - it was literally so easy, I’m not sure why everyone doesn’t do it.
I made enough to fill 5 pint jars that went into the fridge about midnight Saturday, and we’ve already finished half of it. I think we’ll be making more before the week is out. I’m sure the novelty will wear off soon enough though.
