This second picture was taken when my DH was just about to add it to his pasta.
I do also make homemade sour cream and creme fraiche, yogurt and kefir as well. I had stopped making cheeses just before we started remodeling the kitchen last year. Now that the temperatures here have cooled off I find myself wanting to get back into having cheeses aging in the basement's "Cheese Cave", aka the old, small refrigerator, again.
So, I know it's time for me to start reading the grocery ads for who has plain, old regular milk on sale now and get back to actually doing something useful around here. The nice thing about this endeavour is you get to eat it....
even if you have to wait a blasted year to do so.
