Water Kefir

I recently became the proud parent of some water kefir grains.  They came from a friend in Atlanta who gave them to my father who gave them to me.


 And o man, is it ever wonderful.  It's the easiest kind of parent to be, and the rewards are outstanding.  All you do is add water and sugar to the babies, and they get to work.


 Sometimes I add dried fruit or candied ginger, and it takes on those flavors powerfully.  It also destroys the dried fruit to a pulp, rather quickly.  And leaves a nice sediment.  It's the best bubbly beverage out there.


The thing is, they grow...fast.  So I've got plenty to share.  Let me know if you would like to try your hand in the wonderful world of water kefir, and I'll send some of my hard working little kefir grains to a brand new home.

Hey Ann. I neglected my little ones and so I was hoping I might be able to get some more from you. I will treat them better this time around. I had put them in the fridge and they got lost amongst the chaos. Thank you
