Can I just say that the oh so "easy" world of yogurt and kefir making is driving me insane!!?? I have tried unsuccessfully for years to get any sort of turn on either of these two tasty items. I can't begin to tell you how much milk I have wasted over the years. I did get lucky for a short period of time with kefir. It was divine. However those results were short-lived and I quickly found myself in failure territory once more.
I don't get it. I have tried every single method I can find. Ever recipe with the words "fail proof", "worlds easiest", "works every time" have managed to be a dismal failure.
This week I went to my new best friend (aka Cami the goat queen) and purchased extra milk just so I could try. She gave me her run down. Simple easy and delicious. What did I get? Nothing except milk that I can't really use now. Sigh. I think I may be a whole foods failure.
So two questions:
1. Can someone have a genetic defect that keeps them from producing awesome probiotic filled loveliness?
2. What is your "fail proof" method? I'm getting desperate here.
