The Home Dairy

The more I am researching items to make myself the more I am getting interested in having a go a home made dairy products and cheese making so much so I have indulged in a relatively new book called the Home Creamery by Kathy Farrell-Kingsley ISBN no 978-1-60342 031-0 and it has some very interesting recipes for having a go at your own fresh dairy products at home. It covers and gives basic recipes for each of the following:

Part 1 Section 1 Cultured Dairy Products

Yoghurt; kefir, butter, piima butter, buttermilk, creme fraiche, quark and sour cream

Part 2 Soft Unripened Cheeses

Cream cheese;cottage cheese;ricotta;goat cheese;mozzarella; mascarpone.

The third section covers recipes using the above ingredients

I already make my own yoghurt on a regular basis and there are recipes on the blog for home made yoghurt and dried milk yoghurt. Yoghurt is very good for you and really everyone should start the day off with this as it helps put a lining on your stomach and aids digestion. It is especially good at calming a digestive system that is a little bit sensitive as it puts the good bacteria into your system. Its something we should all eat far more of.

Even in the third section it has sone lovely recipes in which to utilise your home made product, so there is no excuse for not using any of it up.

A very useful little book.

Catch you all later.
