Pawpaw Kombucha

If you are lucky enough to have a supply of Pawpaw fruit or know someone who does then this is a great fruit to add to your next Kombucha batch. This mango, strawberry custard-like flavored fruit is one of North America’s largest native fruits that grows in the eastern United States. In late fall the fruit ripens, and with only a short shelf life of 2-3 days, it is usually best to freeze the pulp or find a recipe to use the fruit in right away. Making Pawpaw flavored Kombucha is one of the ways I have used the pawpaw pulp to enjoy the pawpaw flavor after the pawpaw fruit season has ended.
