Leben/Kefir, Homemade - dairy

Posted by : Rina Perry

After giving you the "Gvina Levana", the "Labane" recipes,
I decided to add another very old, old recipe from my mother Devora.
I remember as a child, her making the leben. 
I used to do it for years, until the "Strauss Dairies" came with such
good products, that I stop making it. 
We in Israel have such good dairy product that when ever I go
abroad I miss it.
So, Try it and, enjoy it too.
