      I listened to In the Dish this mirnong. Interesting for humans. However, Rodney is not a veterinary nutritionist and does not realize that dogs and cats do not have the lactose enzyme to digest milk. So this wonderful fermented milk product produced from Kefir .. may provided some aid with probiotics but the anmals would be able to fully digest it. I would be interested in seeing the double blinded studies to support this finding that it's beneficial in animals. Because that's what you need in order to be 100% sure it's works !

      The freezing of the mixture is something I have not tried. As it is so quick and easy once you have made it a couple of times, I always knock up a batch as and when it is needed fresh, and put the unused in the airtight containers.

      Hey Rodney,

      Doesn't sea salt work differently than the table salt we all use? It seems I read something at one time about it.

      Also, am wondering if you couldn't make this salt and then put it in the freezer so it would be closer to fresh when you wanted to use it. Would that work?

      This sounds yummy! I don't cook often, but this is something I'll try. I very often use Mrs. Dash in lieu of making something myself. It is salt-free and extremely tasty.

      Thanks for sharing!
