Yukon Raft Update. – Oh So Soft and Gooey!

A few weeks ago I posted a picture of a Yukon Raft that I sampled.  I did not give much by way of a description of the experience, now that the temperature here has dropped below 30C I don’t mind sitting in front of a computer and write.  The pictures for this post were taken with my iPad.

The first Yukon Raft for sampling, it was about 6 weeks old.

Twisted Squirrel – Things Are Blooming!

You probably know that I decided to make another batch of Little Squirrels (Twisted Squirrels), but this time using PLA instead of Geo 17.  It is now day 10 and things, they are a blooming!

This was day 9 and the bloom was starting to move up from the sides.

I was quite surprised to see that the bloom was an off white, almost yellow.  I was not expecting the linens to show up for a while. (more…)

Twisted Squirrel – Tweaking The Little Squirrel

All “Little Squirrels” I made last time are now gone, it was time to make some more.  The last time I mused about using PLA (a Geo/Yeast/B. Linens mix) as the mould for the cheese. It was time to get everything ready and make more of these little gems but this time, with a twist.

It was time to get my moulds ready and make some cheese.

Refreshing Canada Day Sparkling Wheymonade!

Happy Canada Day!  This is a day that in many Canadians, symbolizes the start of summer, time for BBQ/Grilling and refreshing drinks.  I have one that I just made and I thought it would be good to share.  Especially given the fact it is made with whey!  Yes you read that right, whey!

Cool, refreshing and made with whey!
