One of the nice things about milking at 6 in the morning is that, by the time I'm done, it's not too late to go back to bed! I don't often do it, but it was unavoidable today. Makes me feel like a cheater of a milkmaid though.

I made a batch of mozzarella today - the first with New-Cow's milk. It tastes fantastic, but I need to modify the recipe - the texture wasn't quite smooth enough. I also have some cream souring for cultured butter and tomorrow I'll make a wheel of cheddar-style cheese, or feta.
