Please enjoy my FUN video of me talking deeply about and tasting my finished raw organic home-made kefirs. I made 6 of them, using many Superfood ingredients.

I hope this video inspires more of the home brewing revolution. The revolution has already begun with the popularity of making your own kombucha at home. Kombucha can be made with many different base ingredients (different sugar sources, different Superfood and herbal amendments.) The kombucha culture is similar to the the kefir culture: they are both symbiotic (mutually beneficial) colonies of beneficial bacteria and friendly fungi.

Kefir is much more versatile than kombucha, as most of the ferments we know of today (dairy kefirs, sauerkraut, sourdough bread) are effectively kefir cultures, although the term kefir often specifically refers to the culture that naturally occurs in fermented quality raw diary. If you have raw milk sitting out for a while, when it goes sour, it is a good thing. Typically, and oh-so-ironically, pasteurized milk will make a bad ferment with unfriendly bacteria when it goes sour.

The entire world is covered in a mist of kefir organisms (friendly bacteria and yeasts). That is why unpasteurized apple juice can turn (ferment) into apple cider vinegar or hard apple cider without the need of inoculating it with kefir or yeast, because the kefir was present on the skin of the apple. Grapes have the organisms on their skin too, perfect for making wine.

However, other unfriendly bacteria and molds exist everywhere also, so to ensure that they do not get a hold of your ferment and make it go off (i.e. blue mold starts growing on your brew), it is a good idea to actually amend your ferment with a kefir starter to help nature alone. Give your ferment a strong immune system with which to begin.

Kefir starters can be purchased on eBay. Search for “Organic Water Kefir Grains.”

To make a kefir (as well as other ferments like sauerkraut, seed yogurt and sourdough bread):

1. Simply start with your base ingredients (coconut water; raw dairies (if you like diary; colostrum is a great choice); vegetables and veggie juices; raw fresh fruit juices; grain and seed mixes) and place them in a sterilized glass jar.

2. Mix in your fresh kefir grains.

3. Top jar with a towel or loose lid and keep at room temperature (the colder it gets the longer the ferment takes) for a day or more.

A typical coconut water kefir takes at least 36 hours to become a fully effervescent low-sugar high-probiotic kefir. Letting the kefir sit out longer will allow it to turn into coconut water vinegar at which time the last bit of sugars get eaten up by the kefir culture to produce more lactic acid. A sauerkraut typically takes a week or so because it is not a complete liquid and the kefir organisms need more time to break down the fibrous walls of the cabbage and other vegetables to eat the sugars within.

Don’t have coconut water? Mix a quart of warm pure water (ideally spring water) with a spoonful of local honey and kefir grains. You will have honey kefir which is just as amazing and full of immunological major nutrients and trace nutrients! As you saw in my video, anything with sugar can become a kefir including all kinds of fresh fruit juices.

To learn more about making your own coconut water kefir and its many soda-tasting variations (“Ginger-Orange Soda Pop,” “Master Clean Kefir,” “Orange Marine Phytoplankton Kefir Slushy Soda,” “Spicy Ginger Ale,” “Vanilla Creme Cider.”) please get yourself a copy of my book Superfood Beauty Elixirs. CLICK HERE to read all about it!

In my new video “High Fruit? Low Fruit? Or…?,” I share an insight regarding the latest Internet health debates on sweet fruit intake, high sugar/low sugar, raw food, wild food, and indigenous-style eating. I have found that you can have your ultra healthful cake and eat it too…with a little-known clever food preparation.

All ancient and modern cultures have fermented foods. They take sugar-containing foods (some foods that are  edible raw/unfermented and foods that are not truly edible until fermentation) and subject them to a fermentation process (wines, kefirs, yogurts, cheeses, beers, sauerkrauts, sourdough bread, etc.) to create a NEW food. This new food – or ferment – has gone through a biological medium (usually a symbiotic colony of lactobacilli (good bacteria) and yeasts (good fungi) that eats up the sugar and turns it into more probiotic bacteria, amino acids, B vitamins, and a huge amount of co-factor nutrients that do wonders for our health.

This is sprouted oats blended with kefir grains and spring water. This will ferment to create the base of a raw sourdough bread.

A ferment typically takes 36 hours to many months to finish depending on the ferment and thus it can do what our own intestines (which are also rich in good bacteria and yeasts) cannot because our digestive process should be 24 hours or less. For the hardcore raw food simplicity eaters who think that we can skip ferments, this is a big concept to accept.

We must also accept the fact that most agricultural food (from the farm and the garden) has undergone a multi-generational genetic change through selective breeding based on farmer’s preference, which typically makes a food bigger (less nutrient dense), sweeter (too much sugar than we need) and less bitter (not enough medicines, which act to nourish our body’s immune system, endocrine system, nervous system, etc.). On the flip side, we must also accept that a lot of wild

Master Cleanse Kefir from the book "Superfood Beauty Elixirs." (http://SuperfoodBeautyElixirs.com) Unlike the typical master cleanse lemonade which is loaded with maple sugar, this ultra-low-glycemic version is rich in coconut kefir's probiotics, B vitamins, amino acids and many co-factor nutrients.

food is often very small, not pleasantly sweet, and too high in bitters (too many alkloids can be toxic to consume strait).

Interestingly, fermentation can be a solution to rendering BOTH the agricultural foods and the highly medicinal wild foods into a more ideal food for us humans to consume: a ferment.

For example, agricultural fruits have too much sugar for most people to handle without spiking blood sugar. However, if we ferment fruits in a controlled manner we end up with a low-sugar beverage that is even more nutritious than the fruit itself. We also can take highly medicinal food and let a ferment break down some of the harsh alkaloids. Wild cruciferous (and to some extent domesticated cruciferous too like the common cabbages) have goitrogens (thyroid function suppressors), but upon fermenting them into a sauerkraut the goitrogens are broken down. The phytates (anti-nutrients that block our absorption of certain nutrients) in seeds can be broken down through sprouting (which is similar to fermentation in that you are activating an enzymatic process via soaking seeds in water) and fermenting when making seed mylk kefirs/yogurts.

Most fermented products available at your local health food store are NOT organic and are often adulterated with extra cane sugar and preservatives. Or in the case of many store-bought kombuchas,

the kombucha ferment is just not DONE yet, and thus a lot of sugar still remains to be eaten and turned into other nutrients. Organic unpasteurized sauerkrauts are easy to find, but all the other ferments are few and far between: raw kefirs, organic pure meads and ciders, organic pure vinegars (other than apple cider vinegar)…these varieties of ferments are not conveniently available for us high-quality seekers yet. Thus I hope my article and video inspire you to start making your own from scratch so that you can have a variety of ferments to add into your regimen. Do some research online and start making your own kefirs and other ferments in your own kitchen.
