Introduction: Homemade Kefir
Clean quart Mason jar with lid (+/-$3)
Kefir starter ($26.95 for a 6 pack, each 6 pack. can make 2 gallons, a quart at a time, found here: http://bodyecology.com)
One quart milk (any type you like, including skim, and coconut water)
Wonder box, (about $15.00 to make, info found here: http://thermalcooker.wordpress.com/category/thermal-cookers/wonderbox/)
Pour the milk with the starter into the Mason jar. Screw on the lid.
Put the date on the jar so that you can keep track of how old it is. There are lots of ways to use it. Just drink it, add a sweetener (like flavored stevia, or honey, or fruit) if you like. You can leave it out on the counter and create Kefir cheese. Add it to smoothies, or it can be used to make dips and dressings, (just Google “Kefir Recipes”). Enjoy!
