Two part post today.
First is coffee kombucha... has anyone tried it.. what did you think of it? We made some recently and hubby who hates coffee and if he has one is up for hours on end and irritable to boot loves the stuff and doesn't react... it's fizzy, it's coffee flavoured and slightly mochary... (if there is such a word, if not I stake claim to it) ... recipe - same as your standard tea based one, just brew coffee instead, uses same amount of sugar.. takes about the same length of time... looks cool too.
Now for the second part of my post.
Sugar is my nemesis, I have a serious sweet tooth, and sugar has also been a food / energy source for me over the years when money was tight, I'd literally eat sugar cubes at work as I didn't have a lunch, kind of thing.. anyway, so sugar is something I have a long and intimate relationship with, and it's proving to be my biggest hurdle to get past. I am at the point where I dont' want it in my house, hoping that that action will keep it's evil control at bay. BUT we ferment, we need sugar, and I am wondering about alternatives that can be used that are natural... honey is out as I use that just like sugar, besides it's antibacterial/fungal/viral and will kill off some if not all cultures eventually (save that which makes mead though)
SO does anyone have any clever ideas for me here?
There is only ONE thing that any one of us is ultimately in control of....that's YOURSELF! ~LTS~
