Say Cheese!

Today was a lovely day. Joelle, Cassandra, Anastasia and Carol came from West Virginia for the afternoon and allowed me to share how I make cottage cheese and Mozzarella. We had a fun afternoon with good food and good companionship. They brought a wonderful fruit salad which was a delight in the middle of winter, orange punch and a birthday cake to celebrate Joelle's birthday. I had made zero mile chili and we whipped up some cheese spread to go on some crackers as well.

I finally got my Derby cheese waxed today as well!

Very nice! Sounds like a GREAT day!
How's Edie looking? I need to haul out my 4th surge in anticipation of Gale's freshening. I know you have to haul milk a distance too. Did you get stainless steel totes?

Edy is fat, fat, fat but no udder development yet. I did get some totes and they are wonderful! I think they are 6 quart totes. They hold about 1.5 gallons but are short enough that I can get them in my dishwasher. I have Edy and Emmy with due dates within 3 weeks of each other. I'll be back to milking five.

Sounds like fun, I'd love to watch someone who actually knows what they are doing make cheese. LOL I made cottage cheese today though, and it turned out pretty good. :)

Now if we could just get a way to age cheese, so we could make hard cheeses. We made one wheel, and didn't have a cold enough spot to age it...and it was horrible three months later. *giggle*
