A Starter Package from Cultures for Health

in Giveaways

Today’s giveaway is the last of the week, and it’s a real treat for all of you who enjoy eating healthily and frugally (that’s everybody, right?). Cultures For Health sells starters and cultures to help you make your own yogurt, buttermilk, kefir, sourdough and so much more. They also have a selection of books and supplies, to meet all your fermenting needs!

They are giving away a starter pack of three cultures (your choice). I would personally pick a sourdough starter and a kefir culture… two things I can’t find in France. And a yogurt starter- I absolutely adore homemade yogurt. It’s like nothing you can buy in the store, especially here in France. Here’s how you can win.

  • Leave a comment, saying which starter you would choose, were you to win and sign up on the special Almost Frugal page on their site (click the links above).
  • Tweet about the contest on Twitter, mentioning @AlmostFrugal, Cultures for Health and including a link to the post.
  • Subscribe to my feed (one time only please!) by RSS or email and look for the special code word at the bottom of each post in the feed. Then email me at almostfrugal at gmail dot com with the special code word in the subject of the email. There’s no need to write anything in the bottom of the email, as it won’t be read.
  • Write a post about one or all of the contests, linking back to each contest you write about. No need to let me know you’ve written the post- there will be an automatic trackback to each entry.
  • Sign up for the Almost Frugal blog network or fan page (one time only please!) on Facebook. Then email me at almostfrugal at gmail dot com with your user name so that I can recognize you and record your entry.

You can do this for each of the contests, and don’t worry about remembering all of this- the contest rules will be repeated at the end of each post! Now for the technical bit.

Each contest starts at 12 noon GMT the day the post is published and each contest ends on April 21, 2009 at 12 noon GMT. The contests are open to international contestants, unless stated otherwise. Each contestant can enter multiple contests, but may only win one of them. I reserve the right to disqualify contestants for any reason.

Good luck!

I’ve been wanting to learn to make my own yogurt for some time now
so I would definitely pick that plus some sourdough starter. Thanks
for the chance to win!

2 MaryCat April 17, 2009

I have a yogurt maker and I haven;t made fresh yogurt in quite some time. I would pick all yogurt starters and go crazy!

3 Erin April 17, 2009

I would choose the kefir, sourdough, and buttermilk because I already make my own yogurt so I don’t really need a starter for that. I love your blog!

4 Therese April 17, 2009

I would love to win the water kefir, yogurt and sourdough starters-yum!

5 Pam April 18, 2009

I would love the yogurt starter. I love smoothies every day, and homemade yogurt would be awesome!

6 Babaloo April 18, 2009

I'd pick the sourdough starter (hard to get good sourdough bread in Ireland) and the yogurt one. I already make my own yogurt about once a week and it's miles better than anything you can buy in the shops!

7 Leah April 18, 2009

I would probably choose sourdough, buttermilk, and the vili yogurt starter. I'm intrigued by the countertop method of making yogurt. It sounds so much easier!

8 Maren April 18, 2009

I would choose the yogurt…I love yogurt.

9 Vicki Wurgler April 18, 2009

I'd pick yogurt-the fil mjolk sounds good

10 Molly April 18, 2009

I'd pick a buttermilk culture (to use in recipes that call for the buttermilk I never seem to have on hand), the Matsoni yogurt culture, and the Filmjolk yogurt culture. MMmmmm…

11 Amy April 19, 2009

I have been trying to find a good yogurt culture. I would love to try the keifer.

12 Steph April 19, 2009

I know I definitely want water kefir and sourdough starter. I'd have a harder time deciding between dairy kefir and yogurt starter though.

I would love to try the yogurt starter. I'm a bit hesitant to try things like this as I'm afraid it won't turn out. . . but it's worth a try! Thanks for the giveaway:)

14 CarrieO April 20, 2009

I'd like to try the yogurt starter. I've always wanted to try it, but never tried.

15 Joy April 20, 2009

I would love to try one of the yogurt starters or a sourdough starter!

16 Susan April 20, 2009

I’d love to try a sourdough starter. I make my own bread but have never had success with sourdough! Thanks!

17 Billie April 21, 2009

This would be very cool as I have been thinking about making yogurt. I already make my own bread with a bread maker but wondering about pizza!

I would be interested in the PIIMA yogurt culture, the Camaldoli sourdough starter and probably the buttermilk starter. My husband has been talking about eating a homemade thin yogurt that he used to eat in Peru. This would be perfect!

18 Rini April 21, 2009

I would pick two sourdoughs to try (picky husband) – I think San Francisco, plus either French or Italian… And then perhaps I’d try the Water Kefir. Ooh, or maybe I’d trade one of the sourdoughs for some buttermilk!

I’ve been wanting to try one of those “friendship bread” recipes, but… I’m a bit short on friends who eat outside of Taco Bell… 😉
