I currently have one doe, Blossom, a Saneen, in milk. When Blossom is in "high milk" production, over two gallons a day, I had to come up with some uses for all this milk. Soaps, cheese, yogurt, ice creams..... First I have to say. I pasteurize. I know many of you are Raw Milk advocates. I support your decision. For me and my family and many conversations with many people, including my vet, I pasteurize. Im not opening up that nasty can of worms! We like pizza so I usually make Mozzarella and either use it right away or freeze it. Also I save the whey and make Ricotta or give the whey to my chickens.
I have made Fetta, Ricotta, Paneer, Chevre, Cheese Curds, Cheddar and Parmesan cheese all from Blossoms milk. They are all delicious. Theres just something wonderful about sitting down to a meal with my family and all or most of the meal is homemade and or home grown. Love that!
