Charlotte's twins

Sweet-tempered Sweet Land Charlotte kidded twin doelings on May 18, 2016.  She was bred to rambunctious buck Capsand Creamery Walker again for her 2nd kidding and like last year, it was an easy birth.  Both doelings have hearty appetites & strong sucking reflexes.  One has coloring very similar to Charlotte, a light pinkish color; her sister is a flashy tricolor.  They are a cute pair!  Here they go exploring the plum thicket in the beautiful May sunshine.

Another Cheese post: Goat's Milk Mozzarella

Goat's milk mozzarella is one of my favorite cheeses to make.  It was the first cheese recipe I tried as a beginner and I haven't stopped making it since.  It's quite a simple recipe.  I use a variation similar to Ricki Carroll's famous 30-Minute mozzarella. Rather than using a microwave, I use salted hot whey to heat and stretch the mozzarella.  I make this about once a week for Friday night pizza tradition.  It's perfect when the salty gooey cheese melts into the sausuage and gets nice and crusty.

cheesy fresh mozzarella - can be made right in your own kitchen!
