Edible Thursday: Make, Grow, Eat

By Linsibrownson @CleverSpark

Last weekend I went on an adventure to Culver City to check out the Eat Real Festival.  As you may recall from my previous post Eat Real in L.A. I was pretty excited about gig.

Between walking, consuming and cooing over the farm animals…

I also learned that it’s pretty easy to make some funky food in your own home.  Like growing these crazy mushrooms in a box.

The Mushroom Kit

I just love this idea – not only do they look cool but it makes this somewhat daunting garden item easy and fun.  TheMushroomKit.com

Or try brewing a batch of Kombucha tea.  It’s perfect for a hot summer day and is chock full of good-for-your-gut stuff.

Kombucha Kamp

If you’re SoCal local, check out proprietor Hannah’s Kombucha Kamp.  If you live further away, you can learn all you would ever want to know about kombucha (and more) and purchase your own kit online at KombuchaKamp.com

Other favorites of the show:

Orgasmo de la Boca (yep, you read that right) – smoked olives

Backyard In a Jar – delicious preserves like basil, peach habanero and tapas.  I loved that this booth was in a vintage VW bus!

Homeboy Bakery – Breads and other deliciousness made by at-risk youth
