"Queso Deprimido"
« on: December 09, 2017, 09:21:39 AM »
My newest blue cheese--a milled curd style.
Day 4--Sides just smoothed slightly and ready for the cave


(The name is sort of a joke--do you get it?)

Got it !  Took about an hour ( lack of enough coffee )  LMAO
Did you use goat milk ?    Would love to try that way.  Goat milk price went up from $12 to $17 a gallon here.
Getting to expensive !

WHAT?  $17/gallon???


Wow I feel rich--right now I'm at a low point on milking and I'm still getting 1 and 1/2 gallons every morning.
Calculating my hard costs--food, vitamins, vet bills, etc -- means my milk costs me about 75 cents per gallon.
(I exclude my time--since I'm retired and this is a hobby, I wouldn't even begin to know how to calculate what my time was worth)


Thanks for laughing at the joke.

I pay almost 8x the price of cow's milk for goat's milk. It is really liquid gold.

I had no idea goat milk was so expensive in other places.

You should know that at the farmers market (feria) here in San Isidro del General it is 1 mil per liter ,so almost 2 US $ a liter. I get my leche de vaca for 300 colones per liter.
