As well as learning more about dehydrating, I have started to make Kefir. I thought I had killed it as when it arrived in the post. It wasn't opened for about 4 days as I thought it would be dehydrated but nope. It was a living thing in a couple of tablespoons of milk.
Anyhow, I set too and after 24 hours strained the 'sludge' and threw away the liquid as it smelt yuck and tasted extremely sour. Added more milk and carried on. I was having to use semi skimmed as that is what we use but apparently whole milk is better. We bought some of that today.
After 3 days, it was growing a little and smelt and tasted better so I kept the liquid. Had some in my morning smoothy and drank some before retiring to bed. That is the reason I am trying it, to see if it will help with my sleep.
Today, day 4, it smells okay and tastes okay. Today is also its first go with whole milk so I will be interested to see what it is like tomorrow morning.
The petrol at Asda has gone up 5p per litre since last week and Morrison's by 2p. Maybe theirs will raise more when they have a top up from a tanker, time will tell!
We treated ourselves to a Chinese takeway last night and were given a new price list. The last one was dated December 2021. Almost everything has risen between 20p and 50p with some things £1. No doubt that too will change again soon.
