Making Kefir in 3 Minutes a Day
Someone actually said to me, “even a couple of minutes a day adds up and I’m pretty busy.” If you can’t find 3 minutes a day to eat healthier I’m not sure what else to say.
Before I give up on you, let me just to break it down a little. A trip to the store probably takes at least 30 minutes, plus the use of your car and the cost of gas. If you just pick up some Kefir when you’re already at the store that’s great, but it’s probably ten times more expense, and it’s definitely not fresh. Oh, and of course you’re creating more waste or recyclable material rather than reusing something.
For all that awesome fresh Kefir and sustainable goodness you need to break free of your crazy schedule and find not 4 minutes, not 5, but just 3.
You will need:
- A glass jar
- Coffee filter
- Organic milk
- Bowl and strainer (optional chopstick)
- Kefir grains
We got our Kefir grains mail-order about 3 years ago from this site, Happy Herbalist. The grains reproduce pretty prolifically and we give them away, eat them, and feed them to the pack.
And thanks for the emails explaining that it’s keh-FEER, and not KEE-fir, the way I’ve been completely mispronouncing it for many years.
