GIVEAWAY: Kefir, Yogurt, Sourdough Starters

With all this talk of fermentation and Jenny’s new e-course, I thought I’d host a giveaway for one of my sponsors, Julie at Cultures For Health. Cultures For Health carries a host of starter cultures for a variety of foods, as well as many naturally fermented foods themselves.

Thankfully, Julie also thought a giveaway was a good idea! She agreed to give one of you lucky people three starter cultures. And guess what? You can have your pick of any of her kefir starters, any of her yogurt starters, and any of her sourdough starters. (If you don’t do grains, you can substitute out the sourdough starter for a different one. Or, if you’ve already got one of those starters going that you’re pleased with, she’s also willing to set you up with something new that you WANT.)

Have you ever wanted to get into naturally fermenting your own kefir or yogurt? Making your own sourdough bread? Talk about a way to save money!

These are the foods that keep on giving because you can always use a bit of your last batch as a starter for a new batch.

In these dark, short days when it’s almost impossible to grow anything outside, why not “grow” some beneficial bacteria in your own kitchen?

Think of all the things you could do with these starters! Kefir sodas are fruity, fizzy, and super kid-friendly. Made with water kefir grains, they’re an excellent source of healthy probiotics. Use kefir grains to culture coconut water and you have a veritable re-hydration powerhouse. (Say goodbye, Gatorade!) Yogurt is another one of those family-friendly foods, particularly when mixed with fruit or into smoothies. Did you know there are types of yogurt that you can culture at room temperature? No special equipment needed? And of course, sourdough bread is bread the way it’s supposed to be made. And who doesn’t love sandwiches or French Toast?

    I would love to try a different yogurt starter than what I have been using. For 3 years, I was using Natren yogurt starter and all of a sudden, my home made yogurt with raw milk started tasting really tart. I am blaming it on a change in Natren culture. I thought maybe I got a bad bottle but I have tried two different lots and they both have not been good. I miss my good old yogurt!

    Recently, I have been using Stonyfield Oikos plain yogurt to make my homemade yogurt.

    Anyone have any info on cow share or herd share legalities? I’m in the western NY area and there are only a couple farms where I can get raw milk, but it’s quite a drive. Wish I lived in a retail sale legal state, but unfortunately NY is a farm sale legal state (http://www.ftcldf.org/raw_milk_map.htm).
    I know there are a couple cow share programs that are closer, but I really don’t know a whole lot about it. Heard from some people that they are illegal, others say it’s part of our Constitutional right…just looking for some thoughts. Thanks! :)

    I currently subscribe to your weekly email newsletter.

    I am just starting the GAPS diet. Since I am fully committed to it, I am in the midst of preparing the required foods. I’m also reading Nourishing Traditions. Fermented foods are a major part of the diet. I would love to win these cultures so that I have the right tools starting out.

    Finding the right ingredients for homemade yogurt — the right starter and a source for goat milk that is not ultra pasteurized — is proving to be a challenge. There is a farm close by which sells raw milk from Guernsey and Jersey cows which may work; however, since I am casein-free, I may react better to goat milk.

    My slow cooker is going non-stop with with the required stocks and stews which I am freezing so that I have reserves. It is recommended that some fermented vegetables or fermented vegetable juice be added to them. GAPS requires fermented vegetable juice with each meal (in increasing doses) from the start, then fermented vegetables are introduced and required with each meal thereafter. I have an electric juicer which I’ll use to juice vegetables for fermenting and I’ll ferment shredded vegetables starting with carrot-ginger and beet-turnip, my favorite vegetables.

    I really want to try the body ecology starter as I have heard soooo much about it! I also am interested in the Bulgarian yogurt starter. I’ve been making young coconut meat yogurt with a kefir starter from whole foods but think that it would be loads better with a good quality one!
    I’ve tried milk kefir grains and I love them! I would love to get back into it!
    So that’s my three! Can’t wait to start brewing again!

    I signed up for your newsletter (already rec’v Cultures for Health’s but entered their contest anyway), liked you on FB & shared. I’m dying to try to make Water Kefir. My husband just gave up soda (I’m so proud-and he works overnight so it was extra difficult) so I’m looking forward to trying water kefir for him.
