Sour Date Booch

by lydia on May 15, 2013

Booch is my term of endearment for kombucha, in case you were saying; ‘What is booch?’ My my whole family  loves the booch. We go through a lot of it, and we try a lot of different flavor combinations. Sour date booch is a flavor we fell in love with this winter when I let the booch go a bit too long. It was quite sour, but not yet turned into vinegar. Two of the kids actually like the sour booch just fine, but 2 did not so much love it. I just so happened to have some dates in the fridge and decided to slice them up and add them to the bottled sour kombucha to help sweeten it up a touch. Thus, my sour date booch was born.

Sour Date Booch


  • 1 batch of 30 day booch
  • several dates, pitted & sliced very thinly
  • Several wire stopper bottles


  1. 1 batch of kombucha usually gets me about 5-6 Grolsch bottles.
  2. Place 1 date sliced very thinly into each bottle.
  3. Bottle up your kombucha into your bottles.
  4. Place in a cupboard away from light and let ferment 1 more day. In colder temps it could go 2 more days.
