Now here we go – I’ll catch you up on what’s been twisting in my kitchen the past week.
Coconut Milk Kefir. Our milking does are drying up in milk due to being pregnant. Its exciting that we’ll be having kids soon (my kiddoes are eager, eager), but sad to be without milk. I’ve long been wanting to try the powdered coconut milk from Wilderness Family Naturals. A local friend (the same one who made the blue bowl in the picture) facilitated a big group buy and I got 5 pounds of it. It made really yummy milk, and super yummy kefir. I thought I would have to acclimate my grains to the coconut milk, but they took to it right away. Someone on facebook mentioned that the grains may not multiply in coconut milk, so I’m watching for that. The coconut milk kefir is turning out more thick and more smooth than the milk kefir, which is a plus. It has a bit of a coconutty flavor, is not so effervescent and not so sour.
Fudge. I’ve been wanting to try Kimi’s awesome fudge for some time, and it was good. I did not have the paste kind of palm sugar. The powdered palm sugar left crystally crunchies in the fudge that we really liked. I don’t think the fudge was as smooth due to me not substituting any extra liquid after I used a dry sweetener instead of a wet. I’ll make it again, for sure.
Duck Stock. The Drake became stock this week. So easy in the crockpot. Then I used some of the stock to cook a pot of quinoa, and that was super delicious. I have about 6 cups of stock left to use in some other dishes this week. I love having stock in the fridge to boost nutrition and flavor.
So, that’s it for me! What’s twisting in your kitchen? Feel free to add your Tuesday Twister post in the Linky Tools box above, or share in the comments below!
