What a surprise to wake up to snow this morning! This winter seems to be dragging out, but the kids made sure to make the most of it! Cedar and Lily brought their sleds to work with Momma this morning. Bridger is in helping bottle milk.
Here's what Diamond S Delights has available for this week:
We have been making and selling butter like crazy! We have only a few pounds out of the latest batch that haven't been spoken for, so if you would like some contact us ASAP! It is $16 per pound for this Golden goodness.
We also have made 3 pounds of butter into Ghee this afternoon. If you are not familiar with ghee, it is clarified, unsalted butter with the milk proteins removed. It has a high smoke point, making it perfect for cooking, and an incredible flavor. Many people who cannot tolerate dairy can handle ghee, so try yours today! It is said to keep on the counter 6 months - if it lasts that long.
Three gallons of milk made five pints of cottage cheese $4 each, and four are still left as of this morning. Three pints of "Liquid Gold" (whipped cream) are also available at this time for $9/pint.
We have also been busy bottling marinated feta today. This seems to be a local favorite so be sure to grab yours before it's all gone! $15 for a pint and $24 quart. Of course don't forget about the free range eggs in our little store- $3.50 dozen. While you're picking up eggs be sure to also put in your order for some delicious sourdough bread.
To keep you updated, the cheddar has aged 4 months and is ready (3 pounds)! That's a lot of cheese, and we'll have more variety coming in the future. Currently we are making room in the aging cave for two more rounds of Swiss to be made at the end of this week.
We hope you stay warm and dry. Be sure to check the blog, or our ◊S Delights tab above (http://www.diamondsretreat.com/lozs-delights.html) for weekly updates and what we have in stock at our little store!
As always, thanks for your continued interest and support!
