Two weeks ago we responded to an ad on Craigslist (I am sure you see a pattern here) for dairy kefir grains. We have been adding *fermented foods to our diet and found them tasty, affordable, easy to use once we figure them out and seem to help with our general health. The offer for free Kefir grains was too good to resist.
We journied across the Columbia river to the south to the suburbs and after a bit of wandering had our Kefir to begin the experiment.
There is a lot of information on line as to how to grow, consume and keep your dairy kefir. Kitchen Stewardship at http://www.kitchenstewardship.com/2013/02/01/whats-the-easiest-fermented-food-to-make/ is a very good place to start.

I am looking forward to making kefir ranch salad dressing for our salad greens which are just about ready to harvest.
I have Kefir grains to share locally!
* Commonly made fermented foods at the Tworivers house: Kombucha, soft cheese, sourdough bread, cookies, cake, etc, dill pickles, yogurt
