Brooding On

We're in Milk!

After stressing about having enough milk to keep up with my soapmaking, it sure is nice not to have to worry anymore.  

Nutmeg is now giving us right at a gallon per day!


So, this week, I've been able to freeze milk in ice cubes for soapmaking, 


and try out my new yogurt maker that I got for Christmas (Thanks, Mom and Dad!).


Unlike my old one that relied upon the warmth of a sunny day to maintain an incubating temperature, this new one is electric so we can have yogurt -- rain or shine!

I hope to churn out some frozen yogurt this week as well as some cheese.

I don't foresee, though, that we'll be able to make use of ALL the milk Nutmeg is producing, so those who have inquired about milk purchase, be on the lookout.  I have a few more details to work out regarding storage, pricing, and such, but I hope to have it available for purchase soon.
