Autumn and winter weather is just wonderful for getting projects done. In looking for excuses to stay near the fire but still be productive, I've been busy trying new projects as well as making old favourites.
This last month I've started experimenting with my goats milk too. The first couple of months that I had the does, I was so busy learning about milking and adjusting to the new routine that I couldn't ever imagine getting around to being creative with the milk. However I've finally reached the stage that I have snippets of time to play with it.
A fellow blogger sent me a recipe for a cheese she often makes and I've read and re-read it. Thank you Cath for giving me the encouragement to try! Cath sets it in round moulds which really appeals to me but it uses a different culture which I have yet to buy. So I began experimenting with a Bondon cheese which I press between two boards. The first one turned out well so I am making it again. This time I will add herbs to the cheese rather than just salting it. I'm determined to make a good cheese to use on a platter.
