Right now I am in the middle of preparing my yogurt starters for making raw milk yogurt, complements of Cultures For Health, and I am looking forward to giving you a full review as soon as the yogurts are done.
While you wait, I am pleased to announce that Cultures for Health is offering a special giveaway for Prepare To Eat’s readers this month in honor of the "Culture Your Own Dairy" challenge! The winner will receive a buttermilk culture, any yogurt starter of his/her choice, AND any sourdough starter of his/her choice mailed directly to you. This is a $39 value!
What does sourdough have to do with culturing your own dairy you ask? Nothing really, but it is a good preparation for next month's challenge, which will be to make your own bread.
Cultures For Health
If you are interested in culturing your own foods (kefir, sourdough breads, yogurt, buttermilk, kombucha) Cultures For Health makes locating a quality starter culture simple. Their cultures and starters are priced fairly, and they even ship internationally (aside from Kombucha). They offer 5 different yogurt starters, 17 different sourdough starters, as well as water kefir grains, kombucha mothers, buttermilk starter, dairy kefir grains and other supplies. If we were all neighbors, it would be easy to pass these treasures along as once you establish your culture it will keep for years (with good care) and you will be able to share. Though better than getting them from a neighbor, Cultures For Health includes comprehensive instructions for using your starters.
* Buttermilk Culture
* Yogurt Starter of Your Choice
* Sourdough Starter of Your Choice
