I'm rehydrating kefir grains. What do I do with the milk that isn't kefir yet, but just had the grains sit in it for 24 hours? I hate to throw it away. It smells sorta yeasty. Is it healthy to drink or put in oatmeal or something? I'm not sure what it is now. Didn't the kefir feed on something in it, so what's missing from it now?
Rehydrating Kefir Grains - What to do with milk?
Interesting question! We're big on not throwing out any nutritious food as well...well, I am - sorta wish the rest of my family would help a girl out.
Yeah, I wonder why there are no responses. Don't a lot of people on here make kefir? I've been rehydrating my kefir grains for 3 days now and thrown out the milk each night because I can't figure out what to do with it and it tastes weird. I don't know if it's safe to use in cooking, but I can't find the info anywhere.
A quick search indicates that, although you could eat the water, it may not be advantageous. Seems the soaking is trying to release "anti-nutrients", which presumably go into the water.
But I'm not soaking grains, this has nothing to do with grains. They are called kefir "grains", but they aren't actually grains, it's just given that name. And it's milk that is left over, not water, so that post doesn't really have anything to do with the question.
Sorry, didn't mean to sound snotty, just reread my post and it sounded that way. Just trying to figure it out myself.
Oh, sorry -- I thought you were calling it milk because the water was milky. No wonder you don't want to throw that away! I'll see what I can find...
TF, mamas? Help a girl out...because clearly I'm no use.
