Should I do a cheesemaking course - opinions called for!

Hello, I'm preparing to plunge into home cheesemaking, waiting for my Jersey cow to freshen in February (fingers crossed), and have bought the cheese cave (aka 49 bottle wine cooler for $179.00) from Aldi (Aldi should give this site a commission I reckon). So, I've started to cost cheesemaking cours...

What to do with China Pears?

Hello, I've been given a box of China Pears, which are a roundish, hard green pear. They need to be cooked, and am told they will turn a lovely pink colour. Has anyone used "China Pears" before. I know I can just make them into pear sauce etc, but as I think they are an old fashioned style...

Re: Making yoghurt with fresh milk

No, I don't notice any difference in the taste, although I prefer the idea of "raw" milk than heat treated. I should probably make a batch of the 90 degree variety and refresh my memory though. Although I've read that heating the milk makes for a thicker yogurt, I've also read that the pas...

Re: Making yoghurt with fresh milk

Hi Hayhay, I have my own Jersey that I hand milk, and the only dairy product I have tried, and have confidence in making IS yoghurt. I'm still plucking up the courage to make cheese! At any rate, I have tried two different ways to make yogurt, and both turned out about the same (yummy). The first lo...

Re: more advice please

Minnie, could you please tell me where you buy your rennet and cultures from? I heard they did a cheese making course at Lismore (the week after they ran it!) and was wondering if there is a local supplier in the northern rivers area for rennet and starter? I hate how the cost of postage and handlin...

I just recently bought an old Lister cream separator too. I had hunted for about four months. All the ones on ebay were going way past my price range! So found one in of all places Davenport, Tasmania! I had it couriered up to Grafton, which was twice the price of what I paid for the separator! Stil...
