Nectarine Kombucha or Water Kefir (Plus 2 More Flavor Options)

by lydia on August 30, 2013

With nectarines overflowing the farmer’s market tables, I’ve had loads of fun finding ways to use them. Nectarine kombucha was of course a ‘no-brainer’ as I was bottling up my booch last week for the second ferment, or the flavoring time. We’ve tried just about every other fruit flavor under the sun for our kombucha flavor, but had not yet tried nectarine. It’s similar to that of Peach kombucha, which is also just as divine. I’m taking full advantage of these in-season gems and enjoying some delicious booch with my boys!

3  Nectarine Kombucha or Water Kefir Flavors

Nectarine- Chop 1 nectarine finely, but do not mince. You want pieces small enough to fit through the bottle opening. They will expand some so keep in that in mind too because you want them to come back out that small opening as well. Use -1 Tbsp. chopped pieces of nectarine per bottle.

Nectarine Ginger – 1 Tbsp. chopped nectarine pieces + 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger per bottle

Nectarine Blueberry – 1/2 Tbsp. chopped nectarine pieces + 1/2 Tbsp. slightly mashed blueberries, OR frozen wild blueberries, or blueberry juice per bottle
