Piimä Cream

1/2 pint jar

$7.00
$1.50 Glass Deposit
In Store Only at this time

Piimä is a culture from Scandinavia that can be used to culture milk or cream into a delicious and probiotic dairy product. Culturing cream with piima culture produces a topping similar to crème fraîche or sour cream. According to Sally Fallon Morell, author of Nourishing Traditions, piimä was originally derived from the milk of cows that fed on the butterwort plant. Centuries ago, Scandinavian farmers discovered that milk clabbered better when their cows consumed this herb.

Piimä Cream is cultured at room temperature, and you can use a spoonful of our Piimä Cream to culture your own cream. Use about 2 tablespoons of Piimä Cream to one pint of cream and allow to culture for about 24 hours.

Ingredients: Straus cream, piima culture

Then these are hand chopped and mixed together with Hearty Brown Rice Miso (already aged for two years) and Sweet Tasting Brown Rice Miso (already aged for three months). This mixture is then aged for one full summer.

Many people have told us that a broth made with this miso has helped them through illness. Others take it with them when traveling where good quality food is not always available. This miso is great for an instant soup broth in the workplace or for a "pick-me-up" instead of coffee. This Dandelion Leek Miso was a gifted to the Empress of Japan.
