This has been an exciting week kitchenwise. First with the arrival of our green coffee beans .. then the wheat grinder .. and today my supply of Tattler reusable canning lids. Come payday I'm off the get the wheat berries and give fresh ground wheat a try.
I had such a nice quantity of milk kefir grains (see previous post) that I started to research about using them to make flavored water kefir. The grains were divided: half continue to make milk kefir .. and the other half have been designated for water. So far I'm on my second quart of fermenting the water variety. I used fresh organic ginger and some organic lemon peel to flavor the first batch .. it came out very refreshing .. now to try it on the family :). The second batch I hope to flavor with some tangerines. Soon I'll post some pictures with directions.
The seeds that were sprouted earlier this week are ready to use in salads .. and I'll start on a second batch to sprout. They greatly add flavor and crunch to our meals .. as well as good nutrition.
Last year I injured my right shoulder installing 6 foot metal T-steak posts and fencing around our three fruit trees (to keep the moose out) it has bothered me for about nine months. Well .. after amping up my use of the milk kefir, calcium tablets made from seaweed, and consuming bone broth soups, it is finally on the mend ... just in time for the coming gardening season. If you have the time .. it's well worth the effort to make your own rich soup stock.
