What did I make?
Although I got scolded by the goat's milk police for stealing 4 1/2 quarts of stashed goat's milk a while ago, I wanted to make something new this year.
I made goat's milk cream cheese (recipe I used is linked). Yum. It's draining today, so we can't wait to taste it. I did use the buttermilk too.
(Update: 7/2/14, if you make this recipe, using buttermilk is risky and I am ordering the culture to make the next batch. I would not recommend using the buttermilk.)
Immediately, my daughter (the goat care-taker) asked if she could make strawberry cream cheese. Well, of course she can. Yum!
This batch of cream cheese should give me about 2 cups of whey. I see, from searching the internet, that you can put some of it in lemonade to drink (for a probiotic drink). What do you do with your whey? I'd love some ideas.
Our milk supply is caught up now, so I'm actually being told to make a batch of ricotta cheese. Mmmm. Can't wait to make a lasagna or something.
It's a busy week and we got more rain last night. More later....
