"making" kefir

Friday, December 19, 2014

The gift from my friend keeps giving! Here is the kefir in a jar that sits on our stove top...

After twenty-four hours, it is ready for draining...

I clean the jar...and in go the kurds along with milk for tomorrow...the liquid kefir left from draining is ready to drink...yummmm...

There are enough kurds now to pass along half later today...YAY!

Thank you, Jackie again!! You are helping me stay healthy!

Happy day to all of you!!

    Oh great! Yes, my mother used to make kefir, but the "Kefir mushroom" died with her unfortunately, I might look to get a new one for home...

    I've been making kefir for about 2 years now. Love it. Use it in place of sour cream, buttermilk, yogurt, and the list goes on. Keep it going!

day two...light!

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Day two of Hanukkah begins as the candles are lit this evening...

What a gift light is! GOD's first recorded words are: "Let there by light." And there was light...

The Light of the world, by Whom and through Whom all things were made came...

He is our Light forever!...
