I hear milk baths are very good for you...

I had a busy weekend and didn't have time to make cheese. This is what my fridge looked like this morning. What you can't see are all the gallon jugs behind the front row - nine gallons in all. That doesn't count the two gallons on the stove right now being made into mozzarella.

Oy.

  1. What about some Ice Cream, Patrice? Or popsicles?

  2. My niece made a comment about all the comments on your homeschooling article for WND. I haven't been able to find the comments on the link to (Snark of the week). Is there anyway I can peruse them to be able to have a conversation with my niece (who was way too impressed with the snarky comments and needs to think a little more clearly about this with help from her enlightened aunt)?

    Thanks,

  3. It seems that there was this young lady who wanted to look younger. Her doctor advised her to take a milk bath, so off she went to the local diary for gallons of milk, the dairy man wanted to know is she wanted it pasteurized, but she replied, nope, just up to her neck!

  5. I buy gallon jugs of mayonnaise at Costco and save the jugs after the mayonnaise is gone. After several years I've accumulated about two dozen jugs. They come in handy for multiple purposes because they're lightweight, have a handle, and have a tight lid. We keep our emergency water stored in them; the kids use a couple (dedicated to this purpose) for transporting tadpoles from the pond to the house; I use them for milk. It's amazing how many uses I can find for them.

  6. Hi there,

    Where can I find those great gallon jugs for milk? Our cow is due to deliver her first calf in late May and I've been looking for Gallon jugs with wide mouths. Preferably glass, but may have to be plastic. We live in Alaska and the shipping charges can easily cost more than the product. If you could share a website or two for milk cow supplies that you trust we would be grateful!

  7. The jugs you see in the photo are left over from gallon jugs of mayonnaise purchased at Costco (we use them for everything!). However a lot of people get gallon glass jars from restaurants, which buy them filled with marischino cherries or pickles or whatever. Ask around at restaurants next time you're in town and see if they can save glass jars (with the lids) for you.
