Rick and I recently listened to this fascinating interview about the health benefits of fermented foods: 

We were amazed to learn that these foods  which are relatively easy to make, can improve your immune system and heal a wide assortment of dis-eases. 

Meanwhile, while at a pet sitting clients' home I'd been noticing on Kelly's kitchen counter  some large vats of an amber liquid upon which floated a pancake-like substance.  When I inquired about it, she told me it was her homemade Kumbacha tea – one of the fermented foods I just been hearing about. She offered to let me try some – it was delicious!

 Kelly gave me some of the tea plus a piece of the "SCOBY" and I made my first batch yesterday.   In 7 to 10 days I'll be able to start enjoying this fizzy, healthy beverage.  Here's the recipe she gave me, by the way:

 isn't it great when tasty things are also healthy?
