Yummy Tummy Spread

My creation.

Yummy Tummy Spread

Fresh local honey(wild flower, no GMO crop exposure)(a teaspoon a day is the nicest hay fever treatment)
Fresh Ginger(organic,for tummy upset)

Goat Kefir Cheese(very easy, start with raw goat Kefir,strain with cheese cloth in fridge for 48 hours, like a very tangy cream cheese)(Goat is easier then dairy to digest,but very strong flavor, ideally, I think my family will prefer either coconut kefir(won't thicken as well)or (Dairy kefir cheese) The raw kefir is packed with tons of good bacteria(probiotics)Any of the commercial products with probiotics or natural cultures are very very limited in how many the variety of bacteria compared to raw.. Plus, they remove all the of the naturally occurring first(pasteurization)and then select a few select probiotics(bacteria) to throw back in- helpful but far from ideal.

a few sprinkles of cinnamon and nutmeg(spicy to help family ignore goat flavor till they are used to it.)

Whip it all together and store in Non Metal container(fermented foods will damage metal)

Spread a Tablespoon(perhaps more or less kefir down the road once I know she won't have any ill effects) a day on a nice piece of gluten free toast- The elimination experiment can now begin.

honey for hay fever, ginger for upset tummy, and kefir probiotics to reset the bowels and eliminate constipation.

Not sure if it will work, but sure will be a tasty experiment!

UPDATE-UPDATE~ first "serving" went exceptionally well! Said that she did not taste the goat at all, and if anything, I may have added too much honey! 2 hours later, no sign of allergy or tummy upset(bad couple GI pain days, but she said it made it no worse then it was)

Now, if she can handle it for 2 weeks that is the true test. She tends to react over a few day period at times if no instant reaction.

We are already dreaming about all the different spreads- maybe a smoked salmon/kefir cream/ dill spread? Or a "ranch" spread? Options are endless!
