DIY Kefir: The Champagne of Milk
If you're looking for simple dairy DIY project, look no further than kefir. Chock-full of nutrients and probiotics, kefir is sort of a liquid yogurt, with a light effervescence, as per its nickname: "the champagne of milk."
Yet even with the sweeteners and other additives found in many of the commercial varieties sold here in the States, its availability is still relatively narrow (and often somewhat pricey). All the more reason to try your hand at making it yourself, controlling both the process and the ingredients.
