    I have a fermenting thread around here some where. We dabble with milk kefir and water kefir and fermented veggies.

    Kefir is fermented milk, similar to yougurt, but thinner.

    I've only dabbled. I recently started making yogurt and can't even believe how much better it is than what I can buy in the store. I've also done sauerkraut, which my husband loved, but was a little on the strong side for me. I want to try naturally fermented pickles this year.

    That's an odd twist of fate--I having yogurt right now. I never much cared for milk as a 'stand alone,' so I eat yogurt. Of course, this is butterscotch...

    You should try making it. A lot more healthy for you and it's better tasting. You won't need as much sugar to make it taste good as they put in the commercial stuff. I can eat it unsweetened and I am, to put it kindly, extremely picky.

    Well, until I learned better, I was picky, too. But redheads just don't break up with you, they try to kill you! But I digress...

    I will admit to the yogurt. I eat it rather than ice cream or pieces of pie slathered with whipped cream. However, I don't pack on the pounds, while my wife gains weight just by looking at pie...

    Mostly just kraut and pickles for me.

    I do beets and beans but those are canned/hot processed pickeled.

    Whoops do horseraddish too.

    Get some milk kefir grains and give it a try.

    We use the whey from the milk kefir to ferment the veggies.
