I thought I would share what has been happening in my world over the last while. Most of it is food related...
We are very focused in the home on our daughter's Cambridge exams but in between I have been trying some new things.
I am nearly finished my daughter's beanie for winter.
For the last 5 weeks I have been getting 6 liters of raw milk which I am processing into yoghurt every second week and then into cream cheese before the next batch of milk comes in.
Other weeks I try to use the milk in puddings but this past week I made ricotta cheese.
It produced a lot of whey which I am using in different ways. One way is to make a sour dough rye starter. I will do a proper post on that soon (when I know it works!)
This was the 3rd day...
This was today....the yeasts are going wild!
I am still making stocks...beef and chicken. I now make enough for 2 weeks at a time.
These go into soups, stews, mince dishes and wherever I can find. Good for the bones! (more on my bones in another post too!)
I also used the whey to make oats the following morning. I used our last frozen strawberries to make a sweet sauce to go on the oatmeal and toasted some flaked almonds for a crunchy addition!
And lastly, my new chickens are laying so well. You can see my old girls egg there, the rest are from the new ones. Every second day we get 4 eggs and every first 2 so they are all firing!
Well, thats all folks!
