|"Root Beer" Water Kefir and Ginger Kefir|
Boil 4 c. Water with 3 T. sarsaparilla
Simmer for 20 minutes
Add to 2/3 cups sugar
Add four more cups of water
Let cool completely before adding 1/2 cups water kefir grains. Set in place that it will not be disturbed for 2-3 days. Strain grains (and sarsaparilla), bottle and refrigerate. Make sure to leave some head room - the longer is sits, the more carbonation....the most likely to EXPLODE! :)
|Kefir Grains and Sarsaparilla Root both can be purchased HERE|
Not only did I get my new batches of kefir and kombucha brewing but I also cleaned out the chicken coop. I'd been reading online the benefits of adding herbs to the chicken bedding so I decided it was time to stop pinning such things to pinterest and actually DO it!
The poop filled bedding was sprinkled onto my freshly cleaned garden beds. Fresh bedding was laid and sprinkled with herbs from my yard. I'm sure the chickens loved the scent of lavender in their coop. :)
Chicken potpourri made from herbs around my yard ~ lavender, lemon balm, rosemary and mint.
I can't wait to see what this day brings. Happy Monday, friends!
