Keeping a house cow, goat or sheep and How to make cheese, yoghurt and other dairy productsISBN: 9780947214647PB, full-colour, 160pp, $24.95
Until a few years ago, the idea of cheese or butter making at home had all but vanished. The old farmhouse skills were disappearing. Happily, things have changed, the ‘wheel’ has turned, and handmade cheese is back in favour.
Milk provides calcium for bone health, is good for your teeth, and is said to help the immune system and lower hypertension, among many other health claims.
Like bread, wine or beer, making your own yoghurt, butter and cheese is fun. It’s an age-old tradition – neither difficult nor complicated, and very rewarding.
NO ROOM FOR A GOAT, COW OR SHEEP? NO MATTER. JUST BUY A FEW LITRES OF MILK AND GET STRAIGHT INTO THE PROCESS OF MAKING YOUR OWN CREAM, BUTTER, CHEESE AND YOGHURT.
