Kefir Bread, Two ingredients. 5 Minutes Prep.

 This simple recipe fills my cultural need for bread at every meal.
5 cups flour, 2 cups fresh Kefir, mixed for 5 min., put in a greased pan of your choice. Let it rise 12 hours, baked at 350° for 40 min., a coarse grain bread emerges with a crunchy brown crust.

Next I'm going to try rice flour with honey for a gluten-free version.

Yes, I am learning more and more about Permaculture and am implementing little bits as I go along.

Rice flour was a bust. I have never been happy with the results. If you want rice. Eat rice.
Why fake our meals. Structure meals by the ingredients. Flour makes bread. Not rice, even if you call it flour.

Same with milk. Our propensity for that white beverage is cultural, not practical. Drink something else and culture the milk for yogurt.

Focus on unprocessed foods and you will save money and eat better.

Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
