Dory's milk has been accumulating at an alarming rate.
J. delivered a gallon of milk to Yoders on Monday morning and on Monday afternoon he and Joseph installed Dory in their pasture.
This morning Delilah phoned to announce that we needed to bring home more milk!
We fetched home about 7 qts.
I skimmed cream from the glass gallon jars which have been sitting in our fridge and set the cream to ripen in our new hand-cranked churn.
I tried to recall the procedure used years ago when I regularly made yogurt.
Browsing the web I learned that the latest thing is to make yogurt in a crock pot.
I've just taken the trial batch from under its nest of heavy towels--you can see where we spooned a taste.
Good stuff--cooling in the fridge to serve with fruit in the morning.
J. volunteered to crank the churn--while watching Fox News on his laptop.
I like the juxtapostion of the old and new technology.
J.'s Grammie H. demonstrated the art of making cottage cheese when we stayed with her as newly weds--so many years ago.
Tomorrow I'll see if I can produce an edible batch.
I hope J. and I are not about to turn into "butterballs" with all this milk and cream!
