Cheese and Crackers

The Corgyncombe Dairy
Cheese made in The Corgyncombe Dairy using Corgyncombe Dairy Goat Carmella Lucille's milk. The cheese is flavored with chives from the Corgyncombe Garden of Herbs. The cheese is delicious with homemade crackers baked at The Corgyncombe Bakery. What a tasty treat!

The curds have separated from, and have been skimmed from, the whey. In the above photograph, some skimmed curds are put into a colander lined with cheesecloth. The cheesecloth is tied up to make a bag and hung up to drain.

A reader inquired in The Corgyncombe Courant's "Letters to the Editors" section, about how the crackers tasted. They were good and even more scrumptious with Carmella Lucille's cheese! The Editors at The Corgyncombe Courant

Dearest Diane and Sarah,

I have had a most wonderful time catching up on all the going-ons of your lovely Corgyncombe Cottage! So much beauty to behold and inspiration, too! I feel such a sense of peace when I read your beautifully written entries and view your gorgeous photos! The cheese and crackers look exceptionally delicious! It is such a blessing you have your precious goats to provide you with their delicious and nourishing milk to make such wonderful dishes. I know they are loved and well taken care of... in turn they provide you and your family with the best milk! It was a delight to see you making homemade crackers, the design was so pretty. I also enjoyed your apple post! Dear Tasha certainly did love apples didn't she? It is wonderful how many of her beautiful illustrations include them. Your pie looks so delicious and pretty! I loved the autumnal tea party and the lovely dishes... the whole table setting was delightful. Your soup looked delicious, too. I can imagine how nourishing and warming it is. How wonderful that you have been served this soup made by dear Tasha herself. I know you and Sarah must miss her terribly.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful daily happenings, for providing such a peaceful and encouraging place to visit. Pearl and I send you and Sarah our very best, and the corgyn, too!

Love your kindred spirit,

Dear Matty,

I will have to try the cheese with pasta.

So glad we inspire you.

Dear Jane,

We are sure that you would love keeping goats! Nubians' ears look a bit like a dog's ears. We are teaching our kiddles to "walk on" and "whoa". You might get by with walking them on a leash, but you would have to have a good fence to keep them in, and they love to climb. Unfortunately they would eat your flowers and vegetables but then corgis eat some flowers and vegetables, too. One nice thing, they don't bark, although Carmella Lucille can let out a bellow now and then. Ours are like dogs because they love attention and they like to sit out our lap... even though now they are getting, well, downright heavy.

Diane and Sarah
