Strawberry, Honey & Rose Petals Kombucha Recipe
To celebrate summer, here's a delicious strawberry, honey and rose petal-flavoured kombucha recipe for a refreshing probiotic-rich beverage.
Preparing the Kombucha
Add the teabags to the jar.
Pour 500ml (2 cups) of hot water.
Infuse tea for 15 minutes.
Add the sugar and stir until dissolved.
Add filtered water until you reach the 3 litre level.
Add the kombucha scoby.
Cover the opening with the cloth and secure with rubber band.
Fermenting the Kombucha
Ferment at room temperature for 10 to 15 days.
Taste your kombucha starting on the 5th day or before.
Repeat every 2 days until you like its sweetness-sourness balance. Wait until the mixture is a little more acidic than sweet, because you will be adding honey in the next step.
Flavouring Your Kombucha
Add the rose petals, honey and sliced strawberries to the plain kombucha, mix well, and cover the jar opening with the cloth cover.
Infuse 12 to 24 hours at room temperature.
Taste and add flavour to your taste. Don't be afraid to experiment! "Ooh! I have basil that looks beautiful; I could add it!"
Filter (or leave the rose petals and strawberries because it's pretty!)
Bottle in pressure-resistant bottles, and store at room temperature for a few days.
Test the pressure once a day.
Put in a cool place when the kombucha is sufficiently fizzy (be careful with the pressure).
