A Successful Cheese Making Season Ends


Hi Friends!

Well, my cheese making season is officially over! Not because I don't want to make anymore, but because Alex and I bought a house and we are in the process of planning, packing and then moving to a new province in Canada. It's very exciting but my gosh it's an overwhelming amount of work! It's our first home, we have officially said goodbye to the renting game and we are so grateful! :)

All of my cheese making equipment is in boxes. I have some cheeses in the cave that we will either bring with us or eat up before we go.

This cheese making season was a great success. I revamped my blog, did a lot of written tutorials, video'd my taste tests, wrote printable recipes and I tried a few new cheeses like Fontina and Raclette. I had some cheese fails for sure, such as Feta and Mascarpone.

The highlights of my cheese making were delicious cheeses such as:

American Cheese
Firm Camembert
Goat Cheese
Homemade Cheez Whiz
Jarlsberg
Sour Cream
Colby

All of my recipes are on the side bar of this blog, please feel free to check them out!

My plans for the next cheese making season are to try some original recipes, learn more about the technical aspect of home cheese making, make new cheeses, video tape my tutorials and try to source some fresh raw cow's milk. I am also going to transition to vegetarian rennet. Though I don't think I will have goats this summer, I'm hoping to look into how to keep and care for dairy goats.

I'll see you all at the end of the summer of 2020!!! Thanks for joining me on my cheese journey!

Hey, take pictures of the new place and the area around you. Are you moving to a countryside type farmhouse or is it just a new home with more outside acreage? Take care and good luck with the move.

Exciting!!! Can't wait to hear more about the new home.

Thanks Ivy :) Here here! :)

Thanks Leanna :) It's a cottage style home with just over an acre of land, all treed on a quiet private road, unzoned too so we can have small farm animals if we want! I'll take lots of photos when I get there!!

I'll be talking about the new home A LOT in the near future Jenn! :))
