"Thick Kefir"

You can get kefir just as thick [as yogurt] with a drop of rennet per gallon of milk. You have to do this on the second generation. So you make your kefir with real kefir grains and strain it out and start a new batch. This is your first generation. Now you take 1 or two cups what you strained and stir it into a gallon of milk. Then you put one drop of rennet in 1/4 cup of water and stir all that in. You can pour into individual serving cups at this time because it is going to set up like yogurt in about 24 hours.

You can get your rennet from Ricki Carroll at  If you want to make a quart instead of a gallon. You make up the 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp) in water and take out 1 Tbsp. Too much rennet and it will turn to cheese and whey.


Homemade Bisquick:

1 c tallow or lard (from grass fed only)
4 1/2 c. flour (organic or sprouted)
1 T. salt
1/8 c. baking powder, aluminum free (Rumford or similar brand)

Work this until blue in the face with your pastry blender or a fork
that doesn't give you blisters until the fat is in little bitty
pieces.  I know baking powder is on the forbidden list but it helps in
an emergency or with transitioning to soaking the grain overnight.
It has no preservatives and uses just like the store bought Bisquick
at only a fraction of the cost.
Keep your store bought box for the recipes and you will use it more.

NOTE: This recipe is a big improvement over store-bought Bisquick, but we recommend presoaking all grains before baking with them.
