Here's my grand daughter helping me make sausage. She finds this more fun than cheese, except stretching mozzarella.

Ah, Dave (Master T.) what a cutie! I'm sure you remember my daughter from last summer (Pennsic.) I wish I had pictures of her in the kitchen with me, but I seldom have a hand dry enough to be handling a camera when my little girl is assisting. And I will now apologize for thread jacking and return this thread to it's originally intended subject matter!

Cute!

As a young parent with young children, I didn't have a lot of patience for having them underfoot.  My failing, entirely.  I do have much more patience now, but no grandchildren nearby - they are in Germany while I am in the US Midwest.  Oh, how I miss them.

Well I have finally found time to post some pictures of my 3rd make.  My son helped to cut the curd and the rest "was my job".  I during the first press, I used 1 4L Jug full of water and after the flip I used 2 x 4L jugs full of water.  The smaller batch in the metal bowl was the 3 that I put dried habeneros in.  I have aged them a week in the cave and they are soft and creamy and good to go.  I used Dixie cups again, I have not been able to get to IKEA for the silicone molds.  I did not get a picture of the "second" pressing. This time flipped every 15 mins but after 1 hour I increased the weight.

Nicely done!  These really look like a great project to do together.
