I just strained a 3week old batch (I know- naughty me... but it did mature in the fridge this time ) and selfish me drank it all while DS was asleep. Was going to save him a little...
Wondering if anyone else out there in BH land grows their own Kefir and if their kids like it too.

I was just about to ask you on FB what it is but will ask you here instead
what is it?

It's a probiotic culture you can grow at home in a glass jar on a bench. Basically put the culture in the jar, fill with milk of your choice. Leave overnight and strain to drink next day. Keep on pouring fresh milk over the cultures and you've got a never ending supply of probiotics at the cost of plain milk. Works for all types of milk. I use ridiculously cheap UHT skim milk
And here is some info on the health benefits. My neighbour is gluten intolerant and a couble of tablespoons of Kefir instantly took away her pain from eating white bread.

I have never heard of it - what does it taste like?

hmm, never heard of it before - but it sounds good (considering how much i spend on yakult these days) - can you get several cultures and use them together (aka anti-thrush+calcium deficiency or something like that? )

I mix it with raw sugar, sometimes some puree apple as well. If it's really potent it's got a carbonated edge so with sugar and apple it tastes like apple cider.
Otherwise it tastes a bit like yakhult etc... Bit special though. Hard to describe.
SPG if you're ever on my side of town drop by and taste some. If you like it you're welcome to take some of my cultures. I just eat them when I've grown too many
