Our Hobbies – updated often

Lot’s of “things” breakdown and we try to repair most all that does. These Niki “Airs” were given to us and the soul was coming off. So…..we fixed it. We do quite a bit of fixing things because most of what we have is old, and we can not afford to keep buying new stuff.

Today we’re making a 2-gallon batch of cultured mozzarella.  When the curd mass is ready to be stretched, we’ll form it into 1-lb packages and put it in the freezer.  Then we can thaw a package and stretch the curds whenever we want fresh mozzarella!

On July 10 we made our first Parmesan cheese, using 3 gallons of milk.  We don’t have a cheese press, so we pressed it overnight with some free-weights a visitor left here after his 2-week retreat.

Three days’ worth of milk.  Each of our four milking does gives about 1 quart a day.
