Well, our experiment into salt making came to a grinding halt, and has yet to be restarted, but it will get there in time.
But our next challenge arrived today.
We went on a cheese making course before we left South Africa, thinking that if we ever got a cow, we could make cheese with the extra milk. So far we have a field, if we wish to use it, but no cow or sheep.
What I did not know, until today, is that one can use a yogurt maker to make cheese. (Alright, I will admit it, I did not even know there was such a machine as a yogurt maker.) So, we have been given a yogurt maker. I have read all the instructions, and hopefully tomorrow will be the first run, to see if we can make yogurt, and then to see if we can turn it into cheese. I am sure we will be eating the first few batches, before we start on the cheese production, but I am really excited to see what is going to come out of our kitchen in the next while.
The instructions also list all the wonderful ingredients and vitamins we will be eating, so we should be healthier, as well as fatter in a few weeks. I have a long list of tasks I want to get done while the weather is warm, so hopefully this will give me the 'get up and go' and the extra energy I will need.
