Culture Cover Problem Solver

I don’t know about you, but I never have enough rubber bands around my house…at least not the right size that I need at the time. On more than one occasion I have rummaged through drawers and searched the house from top to bottom looking for a rubber band. One day, after another rubber band broke, when making kombucha I had a brilliant idea! Why not put a metal ring over the coffee filter?!

I tried it and it worked! The filter keeps the metal from touching the culturing liquid and the ring is, of course, the perfect size since it’s made for the jar. Now I use the rings for all my coffee filter covered cultures; kombucha, water kefir, milk kefir, etc. I love when things are simpler.



Bonni started on the cultured foods path quite few years ago, beginning with sauerkraut. Since then, she has cultured yogurt, milk kefir, water kefir, kombucha, a variety of veggies, sour cream and gluten-free sourdough. She is a busy homeschool mom to her daughter, so is always looking for the most efficient and least time consuming ways to manage all of her culturing.
