    Rita~'s Note:

    A sour and pungent, milk kefir is a cultured dairy food originally from the Caucuses – the region where Europe meets Asia. I find it's texture to a drinkable plain yogurt Rich in beneficial bacteria, phosphorus, vitamin K, biotin and folic acid – nutrients that are essential to health and well-being. Good reading about kefir http://nourishedkitchen.com/milk-kefir/ Kefir Grains can be found http://www.culturesforhealth.com/ or http://www.kefirlady.com/orderkefirgrains.htm

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 tablespoon milk, kefir grains
    • 1 quart fresh cow milk or 1 quart goat's milk or 1 quart coconut milk, unsweetened undiluted

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place milk kefir grains in the bottom of a clean mason jar. Cover with 1 quart fresh milk.
    2. 2
      Very loosely, place the lid and band on the mason jar. You do not want to tighten it because, as with all fermentation, carbon dioxide is created and needs to escape. Culture for 24 – 48 hours at room temperature. For a for a thin, mild kefir you can culture for 12 hours.
    3. 3
      Once culturing is complete, strain milk kefir into a new mason jar, cap and refrigerate. Begin re-culturing a new batch of kefir, if desired or allow your kefir grains to rest in water in the refrigerator for a few days until you’re ready to make kefir again.
    4. 4
      "Cultures for Health suggests that it may take a batch or two for the milk kefir grains to adapt)" and for the grains to grow.

      So much easier than yogurt, as you can use the milk straight out of the fridge, and leave it out on the counter. I used more like 4 tbl kefir grains to a quart of milk,, and we've been eating Rugusis Pienas - Lithuanian Clabbered Milk every day. I know most folks seem to make smoothies, but this is like the clabbered milk I remember from my childhood. Nothing better than a cold bowl, with fresh herbs mixed in and a couple of boiled potatoes!
