Fresh lemongrass sits on a plate with slices of fresh, juicy pear in natural light

Three Goddess Kombucha

Did you know that pears, in both Greek and Roman mythology, are sacred to three important Goddesses: Hera, Aphrodite, and Pomona. Three Goddess Kombucha is full of ripe, juicy pears. And, because pear trees are known to live many years, consuming pears is known to promote prosperity and long life. Pears, lemongrass, and special touches like anise and ginger make this kombucha a decadent treat.

  • Pear – juicy and ripe (1 tbsp.)
  • Lemongrass – fresh stalk (½ stalk), or dried (1 tbsp)
  • Star anise – one tiny corner (½ tsp)
  • Fresh ginger – a dime to penny-sized slice (1 tbsp)

September is the ideal time to start harvesting lemongrass stalks. And really, lemongrass is the best type of grass that’s both ornamental and useful. Grow lemongrass in patio pots to enjoy beautiful, natural insect repellant all summer. Mature stalks can be harvested throughout the summer and fall. Dried stalks work well, too! You can find dried lemongrass at many natural grocery stores and co-ops.

In natural light, a bear-shaped bottle of honey lays on a table next to shallow bowls containing dried rose petals, thawed frozen raspberries and cloves. Scattered next to the bowls are small stalks of cinnamon and a few sprigs of fresh rosemary.
