We recently ordered some kefir grains and have begun making kefir at home.  While the results are generally tasty, any slight miscalculation in timing or temperature during the fermentation process can lead to kefir that, while extremely healthy, can taste either a bit too close to the udder or become so fermented that it tastes alive!

For those who have struggled with their own overactive kefir grains, we offer a solution.  Add maple syrup to your kefir.  No matter the imperfections that your homemade kefir may suffer from, simply adding maple syrup to it can make even the gamiest kefir taste like vanilla.
