Hands down, easiest bread recipe….ever. No special tools, no kneading and no fancy techniques or ingredients, this bread recipe inspired by Jim Lahey’s popular pugliese sold at his Sullivan Street Bakery, is life-changing. I never dreamed that I could make bread this good. Keep Reading!
To follow-up on my first attempt on brewing kombucha, IT WAS A SUCCESS!
I allowed the tea to ferment for 1 week and then removed the mother/scoby (which now, there were 2!) I had my dear friend Ruth come over for moral support as I peeled away the mothers/scobys from one another, thankfully it was not nearly as bad as I had envisioned, (I do have a sense of dramatization.) The texture of the pancake-like mother/scoby was firmer than I anticipated, I was suspecting it to be ooey, gooey and slimetastic!
Via Facebook I acquired my first mother/scoby and am on my way to creating my very first batch of home-brewed Kombucha! A scoby is actually an acronym for, Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast (sounds pleasant, yeah!) The scoby/mother looks like a beige or white rubbery pancake. It is placed in sweetened black or green tea and turns a bowl full of sweet tea into a biochemical powerhouse, brimming with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and health-giving organic acids!
