Hmmm, I thought my mozzarella cheese was good. I may have to rethink this. Today a woman and her 4 children came over to see my goats and then I showed the mother how I make mozzarella cheese. She gave her children a taste and one cute little blonde ate hers and promptly threw up. Seriously, I didn't think it was all that bad. The mother assured me she just gagged on it. This made my dogs very happy, if you know what I mean. Sorry, did that make you gag?
I'm finding other ways to use my milk besides the obvious ice cream, cheese and yogurt. This week I made cajeta (pronounced caheeta). It's a Mexican confection that can be served over ice cream, cheese cakes, apple slices, or whatever you like. It's kind of like a caramel syrup, traditionally made from goat's milk. It took me 3 hours to cook 3 quarts of milk, along with sugar, cornstarch and baking soda, down to this much syrup. I was afraid I'd burn it so I kept the heat lower than it probably needed to be. I had read it should take at least an hour and a half.
