My DH thinks we need a dairy cow--I'm not quite ready to commit to milking 2x/day. I tried ricotta last summer--it didn't work for me, but I probably didn't do it right. It didn't thicken. I have to go to NY this weekend to p/up mail from folks in the US (asked that the mail be sent to the UPS store instead of to my P.O. Box in Canada since Canada Post is on strike--a pain, but there is a side benefit--I can go grocery shopping while I'm there). Milk is a lot cheaper in NY. I can bring back $20 of dairy products, I think I'll buy a couple of gallons of milk and try making ricotta and moz. again. A friend of mine used to make goat cheese (she had goats). It was so good.
I guess I better clean out the fridge so I can squeeze two gallons of milk in...
