Homestead Blessings: The Art of Dairy Delights
Franklin Springs Family Media
My girls and I just love the Homestead Blessings series, such fun and such useful skills to learn–that will be useful for a lifetime! I was really thrilled with the latest release in the series, “Dairy Delights”, as we have a small herd of dairy goats!
The West ladies are always fun and give great instruction! In “Dairy Delights” we join them on their farm, and learn about making homemade, hand crank Ice Creams, Yogurts, Cheeses and YUMMY Butters! Although we’ve made Ice Creams, Cheeses and Butters–you can always learn something new, and we sure did! We’ve made honey-butter for a number of years, but never thought to add that extra pinch of cinnamon–what a treat! Herb Butters are heavenly and the West ladies give us some great ideas for delicious herbal butters–perfect on homemade breads! I also learned some new tricks in watching the ladies during their ‘stretching’ process in the making of their mozzerella cheese, it’s so nice to have the visual with the DVD’s. Learn about home-dairying equipment, the delicious health and nutritional benefits (raw milk is SO good for you!) of fresh dairy products–and if you don’t have a dairy animal–don’t fret–you can use milk right off the store shelf if you like, too. We learned some fun new recipes and lots of tips for using all that farm fresh milk! We love the Homestead Blessings series of DVD’s–excellent instruction in the arts of the homesteady and old ways of doing things–which we LOVE. Absolutely recommended!
