I went surfing to try to find help for making goat cheese. And landed in chocolate.
How did I land in chocolate? This website came up on my results list. It's a lovely place - I wish I could visit. They do have intensive language retreats...
But once I pulled myself out of fantasy world travel, I found exactly the type of site I was searching for. It not only has cheese recipes and precise instructions, it has in-depth instructions on milk-handling around milking-time, something I was iffy about last year when I was a rank beginner. Turns out I was pretty much doing it right, but now I have a few new tips to try.
Fias Co Farm, the wonderful website that last year gave me hope that I *could* leave my babies on their mommas as I wanted to, also has a good page about milking procedure.
About 14 years ago, my sister was asking me what my email was. I didn't know *what* email was. She was flabbergasted and said "Do you use the internet much?" Nope, I said, and I don't see the point. What can the internet tell you that you can't learn just as fast or as thoroughly from books in the library? Jeez Louise. I actually said that. Now look at me, surfing the internet at midnight for instructions on goat milking, goat cheese making, and touring France. Can't run to the library at midnight when I want to get information on goat milking. Now off to watch the latest 'The Office' episode, something else I can't run to the library to do. Dwight would appreciate my goat cheese. And I loooves my internet.
