Hey there! Would love to catch up and chat cheese, kefir, chooks, the good life! Making cheese now and majorly into the garden and the chooks...wasnt sure if you had left Hamilton! Text me with ties hat work for you, Im not workin much at the moment.
Love the photos of your garden. How is the mandela garden looking? My garden is full of weeds but somewhere among them I'm growing tomatoes, lettuces, capsicums - all the summer veg :-)
Hi Sarah, thanks for the milk info. I'll definitely give it a try. If it works for my yoghurt and cheese making I'd be keen to join a car pool if the group is open to new-comers. I met up with Jess the other day and she said she knows you- what a small city we live in! kim
I am very impressed with your leek. Congratulations! Isn't it a thrill to produce something wonderful! I enjoyed the pictures of the progress in your garden, too. And you have a little helper as well...
Hi Sarah, Yes I've had the same problem getting the balance between slushy and too salty. Currently I'm not putting it in brine and am even going easy on the salt. So far so good. Cheese is lasting 4 weeks with no mould. I haven't tried leaving it any longer. I've also had success with submerging it under olive oil. But it must be dry first.
