I am sure many of you already think I am a bit on the loopy side, but here is the proof! This was not a typical day, but it was so outrageous I just had to take pictures and show you!
We had butter making, cheese making, bread baking, water Kefir and milk Kefir making, kombucha making and crackers soaking! All in one day
Here we have already brewed kombucha and a few of the 10 loaves we made.
Here we have the cream cheese hanging to get all of the whey out of it. We use the remaining whey to soak our grains and beans with. We make this cheese out of our raw milk. I usually mix in some herbs, garlic, salt and pepper and use it for a veggie dip. Or, sometimes we 'water' it down with milk and it becomes a ranch type salad dressing. Very, very good for you!
This is a picture of our jars of Kefir to be fermented. The large 2 quart jar in the back of the picture is the completed Kefir from the day before. We use this for our Kefir smoothies and soaking our grains. Also, for pancakes and muffins.
These three bowls are our cracker recipe that we soak for 24 hours before we roll them and bake them. Oh, we use the Kefir to soak these too.
The two glasses are 'juiced' ginger that we put in our kombucha. We love ginger Kombucha! the three bowls in the background are the 'tea' cooling waiting for us to put the kombucha scoby into it to make a new batch of kombucha. Am I freaking you out yet?
This is where we keep our water and milk Kefir while it 'ferments' or 'brews'. My very capable 13 year old daughter is pretty much in charge of Kefir making.
Okay, that was one busy homemaking day! While these tasks don't all usually happen in one day, they do happen all through the week. We have been doing them for so long now that they are just part of what we do!
I am extremely passionate about healthy eating, especially for Mamas who are to nourish and feed their families. I have been working on a series on Nourishing Eating. I pray the Lord allows the time to post it. Pray for me too, will you?
