Easy Peasy drinkable yogurt

This is so easy that it is a crime NOT to always have a little yogurt in the house.
Mix 1 tablespoon in 1 cup of milk (or 4 tablespoons to a quart), let sit for 12-24 hours and enjoy!

If it is too sour, culture it for less time.  Not cultured enough?  Give it more time or more warmth.  Play around with what works for your tastes and in your home.  But, remember, it will be pour-able, not thick like store bought (which you can make, but it is more involved).

I've been on a raw milk yogurt tonic binge lately.  We mix 2 pastured egg yolks with 2 teaspoons of Grade B maple syrup stirring well and then fill the glass with drinkable yogurt and stir again.  Now that is a great, healthy breakfast that will last for hours!  Try it.  It is so yummy!

I love sharing some of the blogs and articles I read throughout the week.  Here are a couple of really good ones:

I thought this blog was especially insightful as to the benefits of lacto-fermented (cultured) veggies.  You know, I hardly ever plan a vegetable side with my dinners because I know I can always grab a jar of cultured veggies, spoon out a 1/4 cup and I am getting many more benefits and nutrients than I would steaming a head of broccoli.  It makes meal planning so much easier!

Here is another blog that I thought was worth sharing.  I loved reading the history of canola oil which helps me understand how it got to be so popular - misguided though it is.

The producer said the phones were ringing off the hook with nutrition questions! Host of the show, Phyllis Schlafly raised her children on raw milk! Here is her column on the subject:
Just FYI, WAPF is non-partisan, non-political. By being on a radio show we are not embracing the ideology of the host or network. We are reaching the audience with our message.  As our Executive Director, Kathy Kramer said recently, "We want to get our message to anyone who eats!"
We will accept an invitation to be on any show, regardless of the political or religious persuasion.  If you have a show that you would like us to be on, please send your ideas to our publicist.
