Hi Shelley, Sorry it took so long to get back. Yes! I'd love some horseradish. Can we trade or do some other form of exchange? I'll pay post as well (let me know). Address is: 2/20 Mere Rd., RD5, Hastings 4175, HB. Thanks heaps.

Hi Shelley, yes pls to some water kefir grains when you have them spare thanx.

I cut up the ends of my sourdough loaves for my girls and add both milk kefir and rinsing water to bread crumbs to soften. Every morning my girls get a bowl of vege/rice/oat porridge and if the soaked bread is burried under the porridge my girls quickly pick out the bread first! Guess they must really like it :-)

The more I make milk kefir the faster the grains grow for me, when I want a break I just cover the grains in milk and store in the fridge. About 3 days later I will pull container back out of fridge top up container with more milk (grains were not rinsed) and wait 12-24 hrs for next batch of milk kefir.  With surplus of milk kefir grains I've been giving away, must try & freeze some as backup.  Have another go Shelley, if still not much success I can send some of mine down to you.

Hi Shelley , I noticed you have chickens too :)  I hope you got hold of some milk kefir grains by now.  What I do after I've drained off the milk kefir grains I rinse them with some chlorine free water and give this water to my girls. They absolutely go mental over it and I figure must be good for them too :-)

Could I please ask for a future swap of water kefir grains, I am very keen to try these as a probiotic drinks.  I have a sourdough starter with easy no knead bread recipe or vege seeds to swap for and am happy to pay for postage :-)

thanks in advance,

Hi Shelley,

Yes, I've got heaps of white carrot seed left. The weather here has been wet for a long time so I've given up on my idea to sun dry the seed naturally and have cut it and brought it in to dry (take about a week?). I see you've got heaps of horseradish so maybe we could do an exchange plus some postage from me? i.e. whatever seems fair. I'll send some seed when it's dry and we can liaise then?
