I loved this article! It captured perfectly that feeling of homemade goodness! I will be getting my goats this year, and am thrilled to be making cheese from their milk. We are going to start practicing with raw cows milk this week, since that is what is available right now. Thanks for the recipe and for putting words to my feelings of wanting to spend more time and energy on homemade things. It truly can not just be broken down to numbers.

Have you ever made fudge? The best fudge that I ever had was made with goat's milk. I haven't had it since but never forgot it! That was back in 1982.

Just read the email I was sent on making cheese. One line reads " It has driven myriad aspects of public policy for the last sixty years and brought us things like disposable electronics, Land Rovers, and agribusiness as we know it." Why was a British car manufacturer, whose sales in the US are only 5000 a year and whose cars are mainly used by English farmers, singled out? Most SUVs come from American companies like Ford and GMC (, and Amercia is the most wasteful country on the planet in every category. Keep your xenophobia out of my inbox, and stop taking pot shots. The war ended 200 years ago, moron.

Obviously Evan has not had proper schooling in the fine art of discussing issues that he does not agree with. Name calling is for children and has no place here. Maybe you should have first posed the question as to why "Land Rover" was chosen as an example and then commented.

I baked some yeasted bread a few weeks ago and it was not only a great experience, but the taste was amazing. Next week I am making homemade granola with some of my high school students - toasting it, etc. I'm sure it will be fun!

I bake bread 3-4 times a week.No store bought for us~! I also make Chev're & Feta daily along with yogurt. Homemade is the greatest. Not only is it emotionally satisfying but economical & healthy. Our laundry detergent is homemade, as well, without harmful chemicals. Yes, it takes time but "knowing" what is in what we eat & what we use is "freedom"~!

I hope it's OK with you that I shared a portion of your newsletter on Facebook. I did give credit both to you and Local Harvest (and also a link to Local Harvest).

This recipe looks great. Would you know if I can substitute the goats milk for raw cow's milk instead.

Think of the cheese whey as nutritional water. Substitute it for water in any bread-making recipe, in equal amounts. If you give it as a gift to any of your Jewish friends, be sure to tell them that the bread is now a dairy product so they can remain kosher.
