This is a very good video except for two things. Why on earth would you put good fresh local milk in the micro wave? And pouring the whey down the drain is criminal! It has so many uses, chickens and pigs love it or you could use it to water your house plants. Grow organic for life is a nice catch phrase, it would mean so much more if it is put in practice. I expect better from you folks.

Enjoyed the video on cheese making. Whey is a very nutritious liquid that could be used in bread making, or even fed to animals-chickens and dogs love it, rather than pouring down the drain. It is probably good in a septic, but city plumbing wouldn’t care.
Another point of concern is for those who do not use microwave ovens. Are there alternative methods of heating the curd as a substitute. all the concern about ‘growing organic’, why destroy the cellular structure with microwaves?
just my $0.02 worth

Rita and Elaine,

Thank you for your helpful comments!

Some people like to use a microwave and some don’t. If you want to make cheese without the microwave, here are instructions for a different step, from Mother Earth News http://www.motherearthnews.com/Relish/How-to-Make-Quick-Mozzarella-Cheese-Without-a-Microwave.aspx

Our blog post that accompanies this video has a Save the Whey section, talking about the usefulness of whey and suggests feeding it to animals and adding it to baking recipes http://groworganic.com/organic-gardening/articles/cheese-making-for-beginners.

Thanks for the post with the motherearthnews link.  I don’t even own a microwave and would never use one.

Mariah, Glad that was helpful! We had several questions about the microwave issue so we incorporated the Mother Earth link into the Cheese Making for Beginners post.

Adrianna, Much as we value our friends in Australia and New Zealand, at this time we only ship to the U.S.
