Units Scale
  • 1/2 gallon whole milk
  • 1/2 cup authentic kefir
  • Sea buckthorn jam, to taste
  • Goji jam, to taste
  • Decorative molds to pour milk curds into


  1. In a large pot, bring the milk to a boil over medium heat. Stir frequently with a wooden spoon to prevent it boiling over.
  2. When the milk is boiling, add the kefir.
  3. Continue stirring until the milk is thoroughly curdled. You should see white clumps (curds) separated from translucent yellow liquid (whey).
  4. Remove from heat and strain out the curds. Save the whey! It’s full of nutrients and low in fat, and once it cools down, you can drink it or use it in tons of other ways.
  5. Take a small amount of the curds and put them into a bowl. Do the same with an equal amount of curd in a second bowl. In the first bowl, stir in Sea Buckthorn jam to taste. In the second, stir in Goji berry jam (or blueberry jam) to taste. In both bowls, you want/need the color to be vibrant!
  6. In your aaruul or decorative molds, in a few of the holes, petals or whatever decoration style you are using, CAREFULLY add some sea buckthorn in. In other holes, petals, add some goji or blueberry curd. In the remaining holes, add more unflavored curd in so the amounts in each portion are level and equal. You may want to use a mold with wide patterns to make this easier. If your mold is simpler, just add in some flavored curd first, then unflavored on top of it.
  7. Put the molds under mosquito netting (to keep bugs out) and put the molds directly into the hottest sunlight you can find – DO NOT make this except in the Summer when the temperature is over 80 degrees, preferably even hotter! Take the molds in as the sun goes down and put them in the fridge. Repeat the cycle every day until the aaruul is rock-hard!
  8. Store anywhere, at any temperature once dry. They should last pretty much forever, as long as insects don’t get to them.
