As of this summer, kombucha became much harder to find. FDA rules and regulations regarding kombucha are being reevaluated due to its trace amounts of alcohol. So kombucha lovers are doing what has always been easy enough anyway-making it themselves. All it requries is a kombucha starter or “baby” and some tea to ferment. Tori (above) lives at Wondermoth, which also served as my home in Buffalo for August. Its fabulous residents host a weekly community potluck, share food, cooking tips, cleaning duties, homemade beer and ginger brews and kombucha! Here, Tori wrestles with her vibrant kombucha to deliver babies to those in need, now that kombucha’s future lies in the balance.
