caffeine free kombucha

I just finished a glass of my first-ever caffeine free kombucha, which totally worked, yay! I read a definitive online reference that said that the kombucha brewing process does not change the caffeine level in the liquid matter, and I decided to give it a try. I figured that the caffeine might be required in a non-consumptive way. But, in fact, I got a perfectly nice brew out of it. I made it with Tulsi Tea, which is roobois-based and very spicy. Deeelicious. Perfect for fall.

Right now I am also making pickled garlic, which I mentioned earlier. The garlic is starting to taste all mellow and yummy, but my roomies have been complaining about the smell. Hee. But it will be done soon and then we'll have tasty garlic all through the winter. Today I also started a pickle batch from the coleslaw stuff I got at BJ's. It's going pretty well so far.

Then I will take a break from pickling, since we're having a bit of a problem with fruit flies. C'est la vie. We're just about out of farmshare veggies anyhow.
