Keeping Up With Milk Kefir

Kefir is made using kefir grains, which contain a variety of bacteria and yeasts. These grains are fermented in milk to produce a drink that looks a bit like thin yoghurt. Are you looking for an easy way to get your daily dose of probiotics? Are you looking for something easier than eating sauerkraut everyday?

  • It takes 24 hours to lacto-ferment a batch of kefir.
  • It needs only two ingredients – starter, and animal milk (not seed or nut milk).

Milk Kefir Health Benefits

Quick Milk Kefir Bread

  • In our kitchen we  making bread by hand.
  • Bread baking is all about timing.
  • We follow a family bush ritual in starting the process.
  • The starter is left by running water in a bush environment for a number of days.
  • Today, we know it is the microbes in the organic grain that has the most impact on fermentation.
  • But tradition is the glue that sticks a family together 👪
  • But as for bread machines, you can’t argue with convenience and temperamental sour dough starters.
  • Pop in milk kefir and flour and go to bed.
  • On waking turn on and fresh, delicious bread 3-4 hours later!
  • That even has the sour dough taste.

We used #glutenfree mixture of green banana and tiger nut flour. For extra sour zing and colour, a dash of red #sauerkraut.

How can I enjoy milk kefir?

‘’Kefir is a cultured, fermented milk drink,

It is similar to yoghurt – but a drink, with a tart, sour taste and a slight ‘fizz’.

This is due to carbon dioxide – the end product of the fermentation process.

The length of the fermentation time will affect the taste.

Kefir is a good source of calcium and is rich in probiotic bacteria.’’

Milk is a powerful symbol within most cultural traditions.

It is the fluid of eternal life, fertility, abundance; it is the food of the gods.

Milk symbolizes the MOTHER, it is deeply connected with life itself.
