Join us this October as we learn about the fermented beverages Kombucha and Kefir at the Bedford Central, Forest, and Moneta/SML Libraries.  

What are Kombucha and Kefir you ask?
Kombucha (kahm-boo-chah) is a type of fermented tea while Kefir (kuh-feer) is most often made from milk.  While these beverages have been around for centuries they have become increasingly popular in this country in the last few years and are now commonly found in neighborhood supermarkets.

Just like fermented foods, these beverages are full of healthful probiotics.  Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system.  In this program we’ll talk more about the benefits of fermented beverages and teach you how to make your own kombucha and kefir at home. 
It’s surprisingly easy!  You only need a few ingredients and minimal equipment.       

We’ll also have samples of commercially made versions of both beverages for people to taste.* 
Quantities are limited, so please sign up at your library.
