We are finally at the end of March and it’s time for you to share what you’ve done with home dairy.
We’ve got some great prizes for you!
A Bulgarian yogurt starter from Cultures for Health, a $12.99 value. This particular yogurt culture is the most similar to commercial yogurt. I love the piima personally because it sets up at room temperature without any fussing but it’s not thick like commercial yogurt. The flavor, however, is sublime.
A buttermilk starter from Cultures for Health, a $12.99 value. This will elevate your baked goods to a whole new realm. I use it to acidify all my grain doughs and batters, from coffee cakes to bread to biscuits. It makes a great dressing base as well.
Cultures for Health has just about any starter you might need for creating sublime home dairy creations so jump on over and check them out!
Everybody’s favorite Queen of Cheese, Ricki Carroll of Cheesemaking.com has donated a mozzarella and ricotta kit, a $24.95 value. She’s also donated a copy of her Home Cheesemaking Book (a $16.95 value) which covers just about anything you can possibly do to milk. By the time you finish reading this you’ll be searching for farmland so you can get a herd of cows or goats (or both).
HOW CAN YOU WIN?
If you have a blog, please use the Mr. Linky tool to link to your blog entry showing us what you did this month. If you don’t have a blog, that’s ok. Simply leave a comment on this blog entry by midnight on Saturday, April 7 and tell us what you did. Doing either thing will put you in the running for these fabulous prizes.
I hope you’ll visit the other sites and meet other like-minded urban farmers – I’m looking forward to checking out everything you’ve done myself!
Next up: the gardening challenge so dust off your mud boots and trowels. This is where the seed packets hit the dirt.
