|My first farmhouse cheddar cheese is aging in the basement.|
I have to practice more. I really don't know if I'm using the press correctly or not.
It came with NO instructions.
|I racked the Maple Sap Wine (recipe here).|
In Sept. for our fair competition, it was not ready.
Today....not bad! The recipe said it tasted better after a year -- a year is coming right up.
It's getting nice and clear and I'll bottle it in a couple of weeks.
I would make it again.
It does not taste like maple at all, and it is dry instead of sweet. ....and potent.
|The mitten tree I got for Christmas has been getting a good workout.|
After ice fishing yesterday the grandkids were soaked.
I heard they "played" with a fish all afternoon.
As the gloves dried it smelled like I was roasting fish!
