In the past few weeks, I’ve enjoyed a little treat: fresh, homemade matsoni courtesy of a new company Cultures for Health. Matsoni is a nice tart yogurt hailing from Georgia and was thought to convey long life. Matsoni is also a room-temperature yogurt that cultures well with minimal effort.
For those of you that are interested in eating different strains of yogurt, drinking cultured beverages like kombucha or kefir or baking artisan-style sourdough breads, finding a starter culture can prove difficult. It took me several months to find my first batch of water kefir, and several more months before I found a kombucha scoby. I’ve got a waiting list of friends and readers for kombucha mothers water kefir grains that’s several months deep. No joke, this stuff is hard to find. Fortunately, though, once you a acquire a starter and maintain its health, it will continue reproducing for you indefinitely.
So here it is: This week Cultures for Health is offering a special giveaway for NourishedKitchen.com‘s readers. The winner will receive a package of water kefir grains PLUS any yogurt starter of his/her choice and any sourdough starter of his/her choice.
