Kefir Cheese and Whey
Making kefir whey and cheese is something I do many times a week. It doesn't take long and the whey will culture a multitude of foods. The whey in kefir has many benefits too, so don't throw it out!
One of the things I hope to accomplish with this blog is to make it easy and commonplace to have cultured foods as part of your everyday life. Let's face it - if it is too hard or complicated most people are not going to do it. So if I can teach you a few things to make life easier, hopefully you will start making and enjoying these life-giving foods. Kefir cheese is easy to make and something you'll want to keep on hand. It can replace sour cream and even cream cheese in a lot of recipes.
Kefir has so many probiotics, at least 30, and that does not even account for the good yeasts that you get too. So grab your kefir, a bowl, and a coffee filter and we are ready to begin. Easy, I promise. Let's Make Kefir Cheese!
