Buttermilk


Cultured buttermilk is a great addition to your diet bringing superior nutrition and balancing digestion. It is an essential component in all my bread and dough making for pre-soaking the flour.

Do It Yourself Goat Buttermilk Culture

This is very simple just two ingredients – one carton of full fat goat milk (or any milk) and one carton of cultured buttermilk. Better organic if you can source it.

Pour 1/4 of the buttermilk into a clean glass jar and then pour in the milk. Cover with a cling film and leave in a convenient place at room temperature. Swirl occasionally to mix.

After a day or so the milk will have a thicker consistency and will start to separate – it is ready to use! Place in refrigerator. It keeps without spoiling for some long time. Retain some of the buttermilk you have made, transfer to a clean jar and add your milk for your next batch.

If your culture becomes contaminated, it will taste, look and smell not quite right. Discard all and start again with fresh commercially available buttermilk. Pay more attention to cleanliness!

Drink buttermilk on its own if you like or use in smoothies, but principle use for me is in all my breadmaking and baking, soaking flour before use.

Simply DIY Probiotic


I like lots of probiotic cultures in my diet. To make them I use all goat milk, as it is nutritionally superior, much easier to digest and carries a higher vibration than cow.

This is very simple just two ingredients – one carton of full fat goat milk (or any milk) and one carton of commercial probiotic (the more active culture strains included the better). Also better organic if you can source it. Try different products to see what taste you prefer.

Ingredients for DIY probiotics

Pour carton of probiotic into a clean glass jar and then pour in the milk. Cover with a cling film and leave in a convenient warm place – I have a convenient radiator top in the kitchen. Swirl occasionally to mix.

After a couple of days or so the milk will have a thicker consistency and it is ready to use! Keep in the refrigerator. Retain some of the probiotic you have made, transfer to a clean jar and add your milk for your next batch.

The longer you leave it the more bacteria are cultured and the thicker and stronger tasting the probiotic becomes. Its balance of differing organisms varies over time as conditions in the culture change. Eat what suits you! I drink as it comes, add to cereal, on fruit, puddings and use in smoothies.

If your culture becomes contaminated, it will taste, look and smell not quite right. Discard all and start again with fresh commercially available probiotic. Pay more attention to cleanliness!

Everyday Juice


This juice is recommended for everyday use – best probably just before the main meal.

Approximately 1/4 Fresh Pineapple, two to three Carrots and one small -medium raw beetroot to make two glasses.

Pineapple contains enzymes to aid digestion, bromelain and papain, when you are really struggling to digest food properly a little pineapple juice before or with the meal will really help things. Carrot is one of the top ten foods – choose with your nose – if they smell good and carroty it predicates a high mineral content – essential! Beetroot is one of the best medicinal foods – helps especially with kidneys and the urinary tract.
