In our first episode of Season 2, food stylist and home chef, Joanna Badano makes slow-fermented kefir waffles! In Joanna’s recipe, she is using kefir made from grains she got from a fellow fermenter, but you can purchase yours at local health food stores or order them online.
To make your own kefir, get your starter kit and start feeding your grains with a milk of your choice. Simply add kefir grains to milk, any type of milk you prefer (raw or pasteurized – cow, goat or sheep) in a jar, cover with a cloth and allow the milk to culture at room temperature for 24-48 hours.
You will also need some sourdough starter for the recipe as well. Find out if any friends and family bake sourdough or get your own starter going.
For the Batter, you’ll need:
2 1/4 cups of Einkorn Flour
Pinch of Salt
2 Cups Kefir
1/4 Cup of Sourdough Starter
1 TBSP Maple Syrup
1/4 Cup of Warm Water
(cover and let sit overnight)
When you’re ready to make the waffles, you’ll need:
1/4 Cup Cool Melted Butter
Maple Syrup & Berries for Toppings
