Nourishing fermentation!

 Nourishing fermentation in the Pensacola area


Kombucha is a healthy probiotic drink that you can make at home with organic tea, organic sugar and a SCOBY! Whats that you may ask! It stands for Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria & Yeast. The SCOBY,  is the collection of microbes responsible for turning sweet tea into a probiotic beverage. Essentially, it is a living colony of beneficial organisms that turn sugar into healthful acids and probiotics.

SCOBYs are often called “Mushrooms” and are the reason Kombucha is sometimes called “Mushroom Tea.” On a practical level, a SCOBY is an unattractive rubbery disc that covers the surface of the brewing liquid to seal it off from the air. This allows fermentation to happen in an anaerobic (air free) environment.

If properly taken care of, a SCOBY can last for many years. Call Vicki for fresh healthy free SCOBY's and make your own for pennies a bottle! Vicki is a specialist with Kombucha making so she will be able to help you get a good start! Vicki also gives public lessons on making Kombucha.

 Milk kefir

Milk Kefir is a fermented drink, traditionally made using cow's milk or goat's milk. It is made by adding kefir "grains" to milk. These are not grains in the conventional sense, but cultures of yeast and lactic acid bacteria that resemble a cauliflower in appearance. Over a period of 24 hours or so, the microorganisms in the kefir grains multiply and ferment the sugars in the milk, turning it into kefir.

Then the grains are removed from the liquid, and can be used again. So basically, kefir is the drink, but kefir grains are the "starter kit" that you use to produce the drink.

Kefir originated from parts of Eastern Europe and Southwest Asia. The name is derived from the Turkish word keyif, which means "feeling good" after eating. The lactic acid bacteria turn the lactose in the milk into lactic acid, so kefir tastes sour like yogurt, but has a thinner consistency.

You can buy fresh kefir grains from Our daily Bread Bakery at Palafox Farmers market on Saturdays 9am - 2pm. They are naturally dehydrated just for sale and can be easily hydrated again to make delicious kefir!

Real sourdough

Sourdough made the traditional way is made from just 3 ingredients: 
Flour - Salt - Water.....thats it! 
The process of long fermentation at room temperature has been scientifically shown to break down the level of gluten in the bread to a level around 12 ppm making it technically gluten free according a study shown here:
