Inspired by Cultured Food Life’s post about second fermentation of milk kefir, I made this yummy breakfast. I’m normally not a huge fan of kefir but a second fermentation was all it needed to push me into the fan category.
The second fermentation takes the edge off the kefir giving it a more pleasant taste and you can impart other flavors in it like we do with water kefir and kombucha. It also increases the B vitamins. Yay for B vitamins! My first experiment is with orange zest and vanilla extract.
Orange Cream Kefir
- 1 quart raw milk
- kefir grains
- zest from 1 orange
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
ETA: I made some orange cream water kefir this week and cracked open a bottle this afternoon. Yum!
