Cheese Season

9 Aug

I am still milking.  I have a nice amount of milk in the freezer for next year’s kids if needed.  That means I am using the milk to make yummy stuff now.

feta and chevre draining

I started with yogurt.

plain and vanilla yogurt

Once I add fruit, it’s delicious!

peach, cherry vanilla, strawberry pineapple, and blueberry

Then I did a quart of buttermilk.  I need to start another quart because this one is pretty much gone now.  I am using it in baking as well as starting cheeses.

Some of the buttermilk went to chevre.  It takes a bit of time to make, so I want to get all my chevre made and frozen before I go back to work.

I also used some of the buttermilk to start making feta cheese.

It’s another one that takes quite a bit of time.  Again, I’ll make enough to freeze and use throughout the winter.

I’m also planning on using some of this good chevre for my next beet recipe.  How’s that for a teaser?  Then I’ll also start making and freezing Mozzarella.  That one is fast enough I can do that any evening after work, so I’ll be patient on starting that.  I also will finish filling my freezer with gallons for next year’s kids.

    Is Mozzarella easy to make? My daughter and a friend made Paneer. I didn’t care much for it.

      It can be fickle. Hard to get consistent results.

    I just had to look up the recipe for making Mozzarella and indeed it can be easily and wuickly made. You have a real cheese production going on there.
