Our freezers are FULL and almost busting at the seams. But, we've got several months remaining in the milking season. What am I going to do with all this milk?

EZ solution ... I'll make cheeses. It's been while but cheesemaking is fun. My cultures have been frozen so they're OK.

First I'll start with soft chevre-type cheeses. These will help refresh my memory. Then I'll start with gouda-type cheeses. They're delicious.

Since I'm not licenses to sell these cheeses I'll be preparing them for gifts (Christmas, birthdays, justbecause gifts).

I'll take pictures then put them online for you fellow hobbiests.

We're in full milking focus now. Whew! Have we got tons of milk! My kitchen frig is already full and we're only into the milking season ONE DAY.

Think we need to put several babies BACK with their mamas. I need help with all this milk.
