But anyways, getting back to our yummy flavor, we aren’t going to talk about how to make kombucha today.
Instead we are focusing on how To flavor our Kombucha once it’s made! And not just any flavor, orange and ginger!
Just thinking about it makes me crave it!
Not only will you now have the health benefits of the kombucha, but the awesome health benefits of the fresh ginger root as well!
Ginger is great for so many things: digestion, nausea, fevers and inflammation just to name a few!
What you will need
Ok, first let’s go over our ingredients and supplies.
If you are using the Continuous Brew System this will be really easy! With it’s easy fill spout, filling bottles is a dream!
I usually use bottles that I have saved from store bought Kombucha, or you can purchase these glass bottles that are the same size.
I also want to start experimenting with these swing top glass bottles to see if they will make a more fizzy second ferment. I will keep you posted with the results!
2. Fresh Ginger Juice
I use my juicer to juice fresh ginger root.
If you don’t have a juicer or if you are not able to find pure ginger juice, then you can use a small piece of fresh ginger root.
About a quarter to an inch in length.
I do prefer the juice and I feel that you obtain more of the ginger’s health benefits from the fresh juice (as well as the flavor), but the root will still flavor your Kombucha.
3. Orange Juice
You can juice your own or buy store bought organic orange juice.
How To Flavor Kombucha
Ok, now that you have your few ingredients, let’s make delicious orange and ginger Kombucha!
1. First, add 1/4 tsp. to 1 tsp. ginger juice to your empty Kombucha bottles (or your piece of ginger root).
This really depends on your personal preference.
If you like spicy things then go for a whole teaspoon!
If you’re making it for your kids, then probably stick to a 1/4 teaspoon. It does not take much ginger to flavor Kombucha!
2. Next add about 2 to 3 ounces of orange juice to your bottles.
This is also according to taste.
I don’t usually measure it exactly, I just kind of eyeball it. The above picture shows how much I add to my bottles.
3. The last ingredient that you need to add is your prepared Kombucha!
Fill it all the way to the top.
4. And finally, you are going to screw on the lids and put your bottles in a dark cabinet.
You want to allow your Kombucha to complete it’s second ferment.
This will take anywhere from one to three days.
You need to leave it for at least a full 24 hours to give the Kombucha time to eat a portion of the natural sugars in the flavorings.
The longer you leave it the more fizzy it will be.
But do not leave it longer than the three days. Leaving it longer than the three days will increase the alcohol content of your Kombucha, making it unsafe for children.
And now you have delicious Orange and Ginger Kombucha!
Wasn’t that easy?!
