Kombucha Tea – The New Health Craze?

 

Kombucha Tea dates back to around 220 BCE and was primarily used in the Manchuria, Russian and Eastern Europe regions. Currently the United States is seeing a boom in the production and consumption of Kombucha Teas.

Kombucha is a verity of fermented, effervescent sweetened black or green tea drink. By fermenting tea using a colonies of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY), Kombucha is said to have multiple health benefits.

Our Italian Glass Swing Top Bottles are perfect for your Kombucha bottling needs!

WARNING – Do not use a square bottle for any fermented or highly carbonated beverages. Please only use Round Bottles as Square Bottles have a tendency to break when exposed to the pressures developed during fermentation or during carbonation.

FIDO Mason Jar Chicken Pot Pie with Butternut Squash

Bormioli Rocco Fido Latch lid 200ML Mason Jar

Mason jars:  4 Bormioli Rocco FIdo 6 3/4 oz Wide Mouth Latch Lid Canning Jars

Ingredients 

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup onions, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1 small bunch kale, center ribs and stems removed, leaves chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 small butternut squash, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 rotisserie chicken, meat shredded to bite-size pieces (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 large egg

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Heat oil in a heavy skillet or pan over medium-high heat. Add onions; sauté until beginning to brown, about 4 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add garlic and sage to skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until garlic begins to brown, careful not to burn, about 2 minutes.
  4. Massage kale in separate bowl. Add kale and season with salt and pepper to pan with onions. Cook, tossing often, until wilted, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle flour over. Cook, stirring constantly, for 4 minutes.
  5. Stir in broth, 1/2-cupful at a time, then add squash. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until squash is just softened and broth is thickened, 8-10 minutes. Add chicken to skillet, stir, and season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
  6. Scoop filling into lightly greased jars.
  7. Unfold pastry and smooth any creases. Use mason jar lids to trace circle disks, 1/2 inch away from the rim, so the disk is larger than the mouth of the jars.
  8. Place pastry cutouts over filled jars allowing edges to hang over sides.
  9. Whisk egg and 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl. Brush pastry with egg wash; cut five 1/2-inch slits in top to vent.
  10. Bake mason jar pot pies until pastry is beginning to brown, 15-20 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375° and bake until pastry is deep golden brown and crisp, 15-20 minutes longer. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
  11. If for later – let cool naturally – then the individual pies can be frozen in the airtight latch lid jar
