Cooking with Kombucha: The Laundry List of Ideas

Image

Last year I did a brief post on cooking with Kombucha. I’ve done a few things with it since then, but haven’t really jumped into it like I’d hoped. Then, a few weeks ago on Twitter, I’d posted my list of my current ideas, hoping people would let me know their thoughts. I was excited with the ideas that were shared, and wanted to list them here. Thanks to everyone who played along. This might be the summer of cooking with kombucha.

What a great list. It’s exciting to see people share what they’re  working on, or even their maybes. With the ever-growing list of regional kombucha producers, we’re starting to see some really interesting flavors. The possibilities seem endless. Check back to see where I go with this.
