Author: Raia

Ingredients

  • 2 quarts plain kombucha Learn how to make it here.
  • 1 apple sliced; I used golden delicious
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 1-inch chunk of ginger cut in pieces
  • 4 cloves

Instructions

  • After making a fresh batch of kombucha, pour it into two quart-sized canning jars.
  • Divide apple and spices between the two jars.
  • Cover tightly with lids and let stand in a dark place for 24 hours.
  • Refrigerate and enjoy!

Notes

Make sure your lids are clean and rust-free for the second ferment (you can use plastic ones, if you want - but don't use a plastic bottle!).
Kombucha doesn't stop fermenting once it gets refrigerated, though the fermentation does slow down considerably. I try and drink my fresh kombucha within a week. After that it's a little too vinegary for my taste, but it still makes an awesome marinade!
