Tangy Probiotic Snacks

Say “hello” to another fermented treat! Along my kombucha brewing journey, I’ve turned into a part-time experimenter in addition to full-time mama. Besides the endless (and sometimes strange) flavor combinations I’ve tried for the 2nd fermentation, I’ve also discovered some tasty ways to eat the extra SCOBYs. These Tangy Probiotic Snacks don’t take much prep before you throw them in the dehydrator and go about your day, then BAM, they’re ready! I chose "snacks" because they're not quite jerky and not anywhere near a gummy. If you missed my previous recipe post about how to make your own SCOBY Apple Fruit Leather, check it out HERE.

In addition to the ingredients, you’ll need a dehydrator, cutting board, jar/non-plastic container, and either kitchen scissors or a knife. I use a NESCO FD-60 Snackmaster® Express Food Dehydrator (you can purchase here).

Marinating in orange juice

When previously making these, I dusted each piece of SCOBY individually before placing it on the dehydrator tray, but that was so time consuming! As a mama to a little one, you need to manage your time wisely. Work smarter, not harder! 

We've also tried ground ginger and turmeric for a spicy, tummy-soothing treat! Enjoy!
