More About Kefir

Harvesting the “White Gold”- Kefir

This is a wonderful organic source of calcium for improved bone density and overall health. Add to any recipe that would use milk, cream, buttermilk, etc.

The Kefir grains (scoffed from a friend) start the process. You must harvest everyday and keep 2 TBSP to grow more. Harvest again in 24 hours. Keep the amount that you will use everyday in the fridge.  Refrigerate the starter grains to stop the growth.

Here are the original posts about Kefir.  We use it in the morning for fruit smoothies.

Happy Homesteading,
