Farmer Steve's Goaty Cheese Spread

After a long sun­ny Sun­day spent assem­bling bee hives and run­ning, I sam­pled Slide Ranch Steve's lat­est cheese effort, a tangy, salty cheese spread made from adding ren­net to the milk of Slide Ranch goats. Most farmer's cheese is made with archa­ic meth­ods that often require a bit of brute force. For instance, I often made cheese by heat­ing up a few gal­lons of goat milk on a rick­ety old gas stove and adding a bunch of vine­gar just before it boiled. This method works, sort of, but you get what you pay for. The milk heats uneven­ly, so you waste lots of curd; the milk on the bot­tom often burns, mak­ing it taste, well, burnt; and the milk near the bot­tom gets too hot and makes the rest of it taste sour. Steve made his by adding ren­net to fresh goat milk and then spic­ing it with a lit­tle salt and chili pow­der. The result: a safe, sat­is­fy­ing cheese that would nev­er, ever offend. Meg Ryan in cheese form. Fluffy, creamy, easy-going. High­ly rec­om­mend­ed on nacho chips. Best enjoyed dur­ing the late after­noon of sun­ny, breezy Sun­days while sit­ting on rus­tic cab­in porch­es. Absolute­ly must be eat­en while drink­ing Black Butte Porter.

Howdy! I know this is some­what off top­ic but I was won­der­ing if you knew where I could get a captcha plu­g­in for my com­ment form? I'm using the same blog plat­form as yours and I'm hav­ing dif­fi­cul­ty find­ing one? Thanks a lot!

I have noticed that in video cam­eras, unique devices help to main­tain focus auto­mat­i­cal­ly. These sen­sors con­nect­ed with some cam­corders change in con­trast, while oth­ers employ a beam of infra-red (IR) light, espe­cial­ly in low light­ing. High­er stan­dards cam­eras from time to time use a mix of both mod­els and may have Face Pri­or­i­ty AF where the dslr cam­era can 'See' a face while keep­ing focused only on that. Thank you for shar­ing your opin­ions on this blog site.

My broth­er sug­gest­ed I might like this web­site. He was entire­ly right. This post actu­al­ly made my day. You cann't con­sid­er just how a lot time I had spent for this info! Thanks!
