Kombucha-marinated parsnip

Kombucha is also known as mushroom tea. This drink is produced in a complicated process by fermenting sweetened black tea using a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast that creates a type of mushroom. This process is similar to that used for making kefir. Kombucha thus consists of black tea, sugar, and a culture of microorganisms. The fermentation process yields a type of soured juice that you can use to marinate and ferment different types of vegetables.
