I think it's great that Food52 is promoting homemade kombucha with the starter kit offerred in the store today, but I just wanted to let people know that most people who make kombucha have tons of kombucha "mothers" that they're dying to give away - for free! Every time you make kombucha, the mother reproduces itself, so people who make it a lot end up throwing a bunch of starters away. If anyone in the Bay Area is interested in making kombucha, I have 2 or 3 extra starters in my fridge right now that I'm happy to give away.

(Oh, and $10 off your order of $50 or more in the Food52 Shop, too.)
