kefir.


 
making kefir is a regular thing in my house--I'm pretty much obsessed. 
i make mine with raw milk & throw it in a smoothie, it's delicious.
i have convinced so many of my friends to jump on the kefir bandwagon--you should join us!
Facts:
A cultured dairy product produced through the fermentation of milk with kefir 'grains'.
Its birthplace was the Caucasus mountain region in Eurasia.
The healthy bio-matrix (active molecules) in kefir is created through the symbiotic relationship between a complex mixture of specific lactic acid bacteria & beneficial yeasts.
Because it cultures (ferments) at warm room temperature--unlike yogurt--traditional kefir is one of the easiest of cultured milk products to make at home.
 Folks like to share them; it's easy because they grow when they are happy. 
A supply of fresh, preferably unprocessed, milk keeps kefir grains fruitful and multiplying.
 About 1 teaspoon is all you need to make a quart of this drink.
