For ten dollars per starter, I will give you:
1. A jar with a starter culture
2. Detailed instructions and some of my favorite recipes.

With a few simple supplies and ingredients it's very easy to maintain a consistent source of these probiotic foods.
Many starters available online are shipped dehydrated and take a while to "wake up." My starter cultures are living and active. Buy today and have sourdough waffles with a glass of kefir and a dish of filmjölk yogurt tomorrow! Kombucha generally takes between seven and fourteen days to ferment, depending on the temperature of your kitchen.

I have been making kombucha home for many years and seen a benefit in my family's health. The probiotics in kombucha help my son's eczema. Plus we enjoy the taste. My kids don't ask for soda, they ask for pomegranate maple kombucha! I usually use non-GMO natural cane sugar and organic tea to brew my kombucha, but you can also use black or even white tea. Brew your own kombucha at home for a fraction of the price of buying a bottle at the grocery store!

Looking for a lighter, more floral kombucha? Jun is your answer! Jun mothers ferment honey and green tea earning it's moniker as "the champagne of kombucha".

Organic Milk Kefir:
My kefir grains have always been cultured in organic whole milk. A tablespoon or two of these gummy-like kefir grains will culture about 1-2 cups of milk in 24 hours and will continue to grow (especially if you add a bit of cream to your milk), able to culture a quart of milk within a week or two. I've noted over the years that the numerous probiotics in kefir help my family digest grains more readily.

Organic Whole Wheat Sourdough:
My beautifully bubbly whole wheat sourdough has always been cultured with filtered water and organic whole wheat flour. Storing it in the refrigerator allows for a slower fermentation and it needs less attention than sourdough cultured at room temperature on the counter.

Organic Mesophilic Yogurt:

Scandinavian filmjölk and langfil are tangy drinkable yogurts. South African amasi is a buttermilk-like drinkable yogurt. And German quark is a drinkable yogurt with a cheesy flavor. These are great in smoothies, over granola, or as a thick drink by themselves. All are mesophilic cultures, which means the probiotics will culture milk at room temperature. If you can pour milk into a jar and be patient enough to wait 24 hours, you can make this yogurt! These have always been cultured in organic whole milk.
