Kombucha, The Balancing Act

This method is fairly easy and allows for tweaking the end product along the way to adjust for variation in the fermentation results. In stage one, plastic bottles are used to store the ferment to allow carbonation to build up, typically over a couple of days following harvest of the ferment. In stage two, I use glass bottles with plastic lids, which is how I store KT until I'm ready to drink it. Any size bottles can be used. I prefer 600 ml plastic and 300 ml glass soda bottles.

These are thin, half-moon wedges that still include some of the flesh, so that the distinctive bitter note of the chewy rind is refreshed by the soft and juicy pulp. And at the end of the meal, if you order coffee, it comes with a small saucer bearing a homemade truffle for each guest, and the same number of candied orange slices.
