I get an over abundance of kombucha scoby. Every time you make a pot of kombucha you get another scoby. So what to do with them? Well I either give them away or I put them in my garden. The plants love the B vitamins in the kombucha mothers. I have scared my husband when he goes to till my garden. There are a gazillion mothers in the ground from the winter. They look as if something is taking over the garden. I have also planted them next to plants that need a boost. Dig a whole and plop them in. The plants will thank you.
My latest adventure with Kombucha mother is for my dogs. My daughter has a friend at work who enjoys kombucha and told her that her mother takes the kombucha mothers and dehydrates them and gives them as treats to her dogs. What !!!! I have to try this. I cut up the mushroom and placed them in the dehydrator at 95 degrees.
On some of them I spread a little Better Than Bouillon Chicken base. Maybe a 16th of a teaspoon.
Probiotic treats for your dogs!
I gave it to my dogs. The older dog that is 17 and is missing some teeth smelled it and licked it. That was about it.
The younger dog went after it.
