ANSWER Stacy Holmes, Peach Bottom, requested a
recipe for making homemade cheese out of goat’s milk. She
also wanted recipes, other than yogurt, for using goat’s milk.
Thanks to Pam Green, Woodstock, Va., for sending recipes.
Pam recommends two recipe books that she often uses:
“Goats Produce Tool,” which has great recipes for a super
easy mozzarella cheese as well as other items made of goat
milk, and ‘Cheesemaking Made Easy,” great stirred curd Ched
dar! Both can be ordered from the Hoegger Supply Co.
(1 -800-221 -4628) in Fayetteville, GA. Cheesemaking supplies
can also be ordered through them.
5 quarts whole goat milk
% cup cultured buttermilk
2 tablespoons diluted Rennet (dilution is 3 drops liquid
rennet into Vi cup cool water)
Warm milk to 80 degrees. Stir in buttermilk, mix well, and
add 2 tablespoons diluted rennet mixture. Stir well and cover.
Let set at room temperature for 8-12 hours. The cheese is
ready to drain when it looks like thickened yogurt. It sometimes
will have a thin layer of whey floating on the top. Line a large
bowl or colander with cheesecloth and scoop cheese into the
cloth. Tie cloth and hang the cheese to drain for 6-8 hours.
When the bag of curds has stopped dripping, the cheese
should be the consistency of cream cheese. Use as desired
great seasoned with herbs or spices. Freezes well plain.

Western Ranch Seasoning Mix

2 tablespoons parsley flakes
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
Vz teaspoon onion powder
Mix seasonings in ajar with a tight fitting lid. Shake well. Use
to season soft cheese as desired.
