|I think it worked!|
As for the taste...much milder than I thought it would be, and the kids seemed to like it. I actually think I could grow accustomed to drinking it straight, and will see if Byron thinks it will work for his morning smoothies.
By the way, we Americans pronounce "kefir" as in Keefer Sutherland. But my dad, who was raised in Egypt, apparently grew up drinking the stuff and pronounces it "keh - fear" with a short "e" in the first syllable. The second, not first, syllable is accented. Try saying it. Sounds exotic, doesn't it? I don't know about you, but it makes me feel bilingual. Ooh, la la.
But in the end, I'll probably pronounce it "keefur" as in Sutherland.
