Milk Kefir Grains

R95.00 incl VAT

Another organism in the good gut brigade is kefir. (The word is most often pronounced ‘keh-feer’.) It turns milk into a creamy, sour, slightly effervescent concoction that gives the final product a complex deliciousness. Yes, the flavour takes a bit of getting used to but it’s worth it. The lactobacilli in kefir survive stomach acid and get to the other side where they help populate your gut with good bug.

You can use kefir as it is, and in all recipes that require yoghurt and buttermilk – just add more milk to adjust consistency if needs be. And if you place a batch of mature kefir in muslin to drain the curds, you can create a lovely soft cheese. Don’t worry – we’ll include directions in our comprehensive direction leaflet. 

Your kefir grains aren’t sent dry, and don’t need rehydrating when they arrive … you just need to open up the jar, add some whole milk (not UHT), cover the jar with the cotton muslin square we provide, and leave it at room temperature. In a few days, you’ll have your first batch of kefir to enjoy. We’re really pleased with the variety of kefir that we supply – it has lovely fluffy grains and the flavour is delicious. 

Your kefir starter kit consists of a 1 litre Consol preserve jar and a tablespoon of grains. Although the jar will be sealed just before dispatch, it’s important to open up the jar as soon as you receive it so that the kefir can carry on as before.

In the box: 

  • A minimum of 1 tablespoon of kefir grains
  • 1 litre Consol jar with lid and ring, and a square of cotton muslin
  • Instruction leaflet with serving ideas
