You are not going to believe how easy it is to make your own cream cheese!!!
First, you need to start with thick kefir milk. I like mine really thick to make the cream cheese.
Strain your kefir milk as normal and start your new batch of kefir milk with the kefir grains
. I lined a mesh strainer with a coffee filter
. Pour in the thick kefir milk
. I then coverd the thick milk with another strainer to keep my towel from getting in the milk ( the yellow liquid you see in the bottom of the measuring cup is whey. Do not throw your whey out. Save it for fermenting vegetables )
. Cover with a towel and put into the fridg for 24 hours. If I need it in a hurry, I sometimes use it earlier. It will not be as thick but it is like a spreadable cream cheese.
With the cream cheese, we made a dip and had it on crackers. Hubs says this cream cheese is better than what we buy.
