Today I attempted to make some Farmhouse Cheese. I am a very beginner when it comes to cheese making and this is the first pressed cheese I have tried.
My first obstacle was my pot. I poured in two gallons of milk and the pot was almost full. Oh no! Quick text to hubby and he told me of another pot I could use. He is a home brewer so we have a lot of big pots.
There was a lot of letting the milk get to a temperature, putting something in it, letting it set at that temperature, stir every 5 minutes. Not something that can be done if you have someplace to go. I just sat with the milk/cheese, watched Dr. Who and knitted on the red hat.
I hope this was not the most boring blog post you have ever read!!
Sadly, last night the little, red trainer hat had to be frogged. I tried it on and it was too loose. So I scrapped the pattern and went down a needle size and am just making a ribbed hat. It will still be bright and cheerful and I think it will fit much better. I got about 3 inches knitted today while playing with the curds.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
