Don't mean to horn in here, but after reading some of the comments here about the flavor of kefir I wanted to toss in my two cents flavoring!
I used to do the kefir grains thing with my Mother in law when I lived in California and we used syrup (the kind used for Italian sodas) to sweeten them. My favorite was raspberry. Seeing as kefir already has a natural pop n' fizz to it, it almost makes it feel like you're sipping a thick milkshakey kind of soda!
Just an idea for those wanting to try this, but leery due to the taste.
I just moved to Helsinki a few months ago and I am also looking for kefir grains. If anyone has any to spare, I would really appreciate it! (Even just a few - I am patient enough to let them multiply!) Also, I am happy to meet anywhere....
Just heard about these little grains last night at a Slow Food meeting, are there enough to share 4 ways Cynde? Completely understandable if not and I'm asking too late, it sounds like these are hard to come by so no worries if I need to be a little patient! I live in Helsinki also, thanks.
Yes it was Jocke, very good guess! haha No problems though, I cannot private message yet because I am new to this website...weird feature. My email is [email protected] if you want to send me an email!
Cynde, thank you, but I was thinking of water kefir grains. Because I try to avoid milk products. Thank you for your quick reply! But if I don't fined any water kefir grains for sure I will contact you. Regards
Hi everyone! I am looking into making kefir. I have never done this before but have been reading a lot about it online. Does anyone have some kefir grains I can buy from them or know somewhere in Helsinki I can get them?
any other useful tidbits and suggestions would be appreciated.
