      Don't discard the whey down the drain! Use it as a water substitute in bread, on your roses, even drink it in orange juice. But hat suff is full of nutrients!

      Delicious! I followed directions; however, I never got curds large enough to ladle out, so in step 4, I poured the mixture into colander to drain, discarding the large amount of whey that immediately ran through cheesecloth. This has a nice smooth texture just like store-bought. It's a bit of trouble, but worth it if you want fresh goat cheese or live in an area where it is not available. I enjoyed making this.
