Just thought I should mention that Monday we made the first cheese of the season. Mozzarella, several pounds, a nice bowl of ricotta, plus a couple of pounds of butter. Not to mention the gallons of whey. We made pizza for supper that evening and the kids were thrilled to be back in the cheese season. Yesterday we mixed the ricotta with garlic, lemon juice and thyme and spread that on pizza crusts for a snack to take to Grower's Academy. We gave some of the whey to the pigs, who loved it. We put some in the fridge for baking. I used some of the whey for the liquid in our curry this evening.
We are thankful for Priscilla and Coco and all that glorious milk. Now, if I can figure out how to make some brie, aged gouda, a nice gruyere, we will be in heaven! I can't wait to get out Grandpa Ted's cheese press. But will have to wait until baby season has come to a halt.
