Learn to Make Non-Dairy Kefir -- Press Release -- October 25th, 2007


***Making Non-dairy Kefir: Saturday, November 3rd, 1:30 to 3:30 pm***

Learn to make your own fermented sodas with non-dairy kefir culture, water, dried fruit, and sugar! Taste kefir made with different kinds of ingredients!

Gretchen Westlight will present instructions on how to make this enzyme-rich healthful tonic, and offer tastings to demonstrate a variety of delicious dairy-free flavors.

Kefir culture is a SCOBY: Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria and Yeast (the tiny clusters are often called "grains," but there is no cereal grain involved). Every batch of kefir that you ferment will increase the culture, so you'll be able to make your own for as long as you like, and soon be giving your extra culture away, too! Each participant will receive their own culture and set of instructions.

Sliding scale $15-25 (no one turned away for lack of funds). We invite you to register online to be sure of a spot. You may also call TLC Farm at (503) 245-3847 or email  workshops@tryonfarm.org.
