I had reason to clean my freezer yesterday – it was getting repaired and I had to empty it out. I found 8 ears of corn purchased from the local pastured poultry farm. They grow some wonderful tomatoes and corn, in addition to the poultry. The corn is a non-GMO heritage variety, grown from seeds they save year after year. I bought a few dozen extra ears of corn in the summer, steamed them and froze them for later. Later turned out to be yesterday.

This week for Real Food Quote Monday (RFQM), my quote tells the intriguing story of how one woman brought dairy kefir to the Russian people.
Yesterday I shared a simple recipe for making water kefir, along with some flavoring ideas. That was putting the cart a bit before the horse, in that I didn’t tell you much about what makes water kefir so great. But it should have gotten you excited to try it, based on the flavor possibilities and its being very soda-like! Let’s talk now about what makes water kefir special. [by Wardee Harmon]
We love water kefir! I can see why people call it a natural soda. But it is better than soda! Not only does it give you all sorts of probiotic goodness, it is not as sweet and doesn’t leave you with a sickly sweet upset stomach. And with active cultures that can probably last longer than you (with proper care), this is definitely a frugal — not to mention healthy — way to break a soda habit! In this post, I share basic instructions for a first and second fermentation, along with some flavor ideas. [by Wardee Harmon]
