Making Water Kefir !
I've been making water kefir and boy it's so easy and delicious and good for my gut flora !
There are so many different recipes on the net for making this wonderful healthy probiotic beverage..
Every thing I've been reading it that it is good to make it with water high in minerals..Firstly I was using our bore water which is high in minerals and now I'm using course celtic sea salt ..I'm really experimenting ..This is my current recipe that I'm using and it is delicious ... ..Here is my recipe ..
2 litres of rain water ..
1/2 cup raw sugar ..
1 tablespoon coconut sugar..
1/4 teaspoon course celtic salt..
1 thin slice of lemon with skin...
I mix all ingredients in a big 2 litre glass jar add the water kefir crystals and 1/4 cup of previous brew. I cover the jar with a cotton cloth secured with an elastic band and leave it for 48 hours, on a shelf in my pantry..Then I strain and bottle it , and begin the whole process again ..This recipe tastes very much like a lovely bubbly ginger beer...When I get enough I will start selling it if any one is interested just let me know...
I've been reading about all the health benefits just google "water kefir" so much information on the net ..This is great for people who cannot tolerate dairy products...Who else makes water kefir and what is your recipe...
