Herbal Kefir Cheese Spread


Herbal Kefir Cheese Spread

Kefir is an even healthier version of yogurt.  I make my own kefir and if you allow it to ferment longer than the normal few days it becomes kefir cheese.  It is similar in consistency to cream cheese.


Begin by straining your kefir cheese (see both pictures above).  I bought a container that is specifically for draining kefir cheese but regular cheese cloth will work also.  


Pick your favorite herbs from the garden.  This year has been a wonderful season for herbs so I picked 4 different herbs (in the picture above I am going clockwise starting top left):
lemon basil

Wash/rinse your herbs and allow them to drain.  Then chop them as finely as desired (see picture below - I prefer chunkier chopped herbs).


Stir those chopped herbs into your already drained kefir cheese along with:
- salt to taste
- a few dashes of black pepper (ground)
- 1/2 to 1 tablespoon sugar


Refrigerate the cheese spread.


I like to spread it on rye crisps but it can also be used as a veggie dip or chip dip.
