Piimä Cream

1/2 pint jar

$7.00
$1.50 Glass Deposit

Piimä is a culture from Scandinavia that can be used to culture milk or cream into a delicious and probiotic dairy product.

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
