I told you last week that we've got milk...lots of it. I am making butter and buttermilk, yogurt and yogurt cheese and hope to try my hand at cream cheese and mozzarella later this week. I am using the milk to soak our fresh ground wheat the night before mixing and baking it into fresh bread. The texture is very much improved from either the soaking or the milk. Normally we use water, but this is much better.
The buttermilk is going into large quantities of biscuits and pancakes. This week we'll be making lots of buttermilk pies and pound cakes to share and for the freezer.
Even with all that we are doing, we still have lots of milk....and we rarely drink it! Maybe if I get some Ovaltine the kids would drink it. ; ) Anyway, here is where you come in! I need recipes for buttermilk and milk and maybe even some tips in making butter, cheese or yogurt. Oh! How about some ice cream recipes! That would be great as we approach warmer weather.
I can't wait to see the recipes you all share here. Just look below and you will find Mr. Linky. Just click and follow the directions to link up from your own blog or leave me a note in the comment section. And if you are in the neighborhood stop by for a glass of milk and a slice of home baked bread with fresh butter and jam.
