~Farmers Market Special - Tamarillo & Wildflower Honey Kombucha~
As you guys know, we like to experiment with interesting flavours for our market special. Most of the time it works but, occasionally, we have a disaster. Tamarillos, as it turns out, are a tricky flavour to work with kombucha. Both are very tart, and it look us a couple of failed attempts before we found a recipe that we loved.
The secret was to balance out the acidity of the tamarillo with some beautiful, raw Wildflower Honey from Blueskin Bay Honey, allowing the tamarillo flavour to impart into the kombucha without being lost in the sour. We also made a tamarillo cordial with the honey, rather than infusing it. Finally, we are happy with the result! Come and check it out (in bottles and on tap) at the market this weekend.
