OK, your instructions are noted.

I will not make cheese, I will not make cheese, I will not make cheese.

But I love cheese !!!!

Look TA, you only have to put up with me on this forum, I have to put up with me 24 hours a day, I even have to take me on holiday with me - spare a thought for how I feel.

Oh, bless you Chris.  big_hug Could you not take up knitting and crochet?  They are far less demanding than cheese making.

I'll try that again!

My mother was a great knitter, the times I sat with her impatiently holding spools of wool whilst she rolled it into balls for knitting or when we were hard up she would pull an old jumper apart to re-use the wool. Crochet would probably be beyond my capabilities and I would likely stab myself or something so thanks for the suggestions but really, I just don't have the time and I am just amazed at how you ladies do all you do. So, I will just watch, thank you.

To make mature or vintage cheese you will need a copy of "Pratical Cheesemaking" by C.W. Walker-Tisdale and Walter E. Woodnutt mine is the revised enlarged 1928 .big_laugh

Sorry - didn't see this post until now Danny!

We haven't started yet though apparently it's all on for this week - press is nearly finished and found vege-ren in S'bury's!  chef

I got this book - 'Self-Sufficiency Cheesemaking' but I don't rate it to be honest.  Seems a bit generic with the instructions - lots of 'press at medium weight for X time' - what's 'medium'?  As a total novice I want very exact instructions.  What books do you lot have and are they any good?

Good luck with all that Ruth, we shall want progress reports, as you are well aware.

 

BTW, I just tried clicking on your Facebook link under your avatar but it doesn't work, as happens with quite a few others who have the link.  The problem seems to be that there are too many http/ things " look, here is the link to yours "

 

http://www.facebook.com/http://www.facebook.com/Ruthdigs  I think you need to remove the bit at the start.

I'll try that again!

embarassed  Doh " fixed now I think.  When you edit your profile it actually puts in all the ww's fb/ bitsfor you and you just need the name at the end " you don't see it like that on the 'update profile " your online identity' page though so I guess that's why a few are busted.  Sorry!

 

Deffo will provide a pictorial account, although the press will not be finished tonight as Chap has to go to Plymouth to look at a job instead. frown  Looks like me and Harry Potter then¦  whistle
