Whey cool!

Kefir whey is a super food which contains a lot of healing properties. In fact, Hippocrates and Galen, two founding fathers of medicine, frequently recommended whey to their patients to heal them. This whey was often referred to as “liquid gold.”

  • The curds (or the cheese) portion of kefir contains most of the fat, casein and vitamin A.
  • The whey is rich in potassium that can help balance and remove toxins and excess fluids in the body.
  • They both contain probiotics. Heat above 150 degrees F will destroy the probiotics.

Kefir cheese and whey

If you make kefir cheese and have lots of whey, you can add this to drinks and salad dressings and anything that calls for water. The gardens love it!

Kefir preserves milk and keeps it safe.  It will last as much as 9 months in the fridge.  The cold slows fermenting greatly, but it doesn’t stop it, so a long stay in the fridge will net you some very sour kefir.

Sally De Losa says, “The whey is amazing as a stain remover! I used to soak things in milk to remove blood, chocolate, berry stains, etc., but they go really smelly as it takes a day or so; I’ve found that the whey doesn’t get smelly and it does removes all those stains with just by a few hours soak and then into the wash! We have a septic system, so the added bonus is that it doesn’t upset our septic like chemical stain removers do.”

A PLEASANT CHILDHOOD MEMORY

It’s been quite a while since I did a nostalgia post, so as I was looking through my folders I had an epif…. epip…. uh… a thought occurred to me. Living on a farm we only needed to shop for groceries every two weeks or so. I was always excited when I went to the Piggly Wiggly store with granny. There was a mechanical horse out front that cost a penny to ride. Sometimes she gave me the cash, sometime she didn’t. Once in the supermarket I always made a beeline for the cereal aisle. You see,the manufacturers advertised heavily on after school shows and Saturday morning cartoons. A lot of it tasted like crap, but we didn’t care because they all had a free prize in them. It seemed the neater the surprise, the worse the cereal was. A lot of brands came and went and I found some brands I never heard of. Maybe you remember.
