Milk Kefir
Milk kefir is a great way to populate the gut with good bacteria - also known as "probiotics." Goat's milk is the healthiest option, since it's closest to human milk.
  1. Place milk in glass jar.
  2. Add Kefir grains.
  3. Cover with paper towel, coffee filter or dish towel (breathable fabric) and secure with rubber band or string.
  4. Let sit at room temperature for about 24 hours.
  5. Check to see if it's done fermenting by slightly tilting. If milk pulls away from sides in a solid mass, it's ready to strain.
  6. When finished, strain to remove kefir grains.
  7. Store finished kefir in glass jar in refrigerator (or it will continue to ferment).
  8. Re-use grains to make another batch of kefir or store them in glass jar in refrigerator in fresh milk for one week.
