The Creative HomeAcre Hop #4

Welcome to The Creative HomeAcre Hop! I’m so glad to have you here :) This week I’d like to share some photos of my homemade Cottage Cheese and some vintage items that belonged to my Grandma P. I made this batch of cottage cheese from milk that went sour, but you can use fresh milk too. After you make your batch of cheese, you will have a lot of protein rich whey to use in baked goods too! It was super easy to make and didn’t take very long…important points for people with busy lives.

This vintage Pyrex bowl came from my Grandma P. I remember her putting leftover casseroles in it when I was a kid. You could bake in it, use it for storing in the fridge, and then serve it up on the table. I love the Americana design on the side. I suspect it was from the early 70′s or maybe the late 60′s. I’m so happy to have it to remember my Gram’s kitchen!

I filled this cute bowl  with fresh cheese curd, ready for eating or adding milk or cream for cottage cheese.

Another shot of the fresh cheese curds. This time you can see my favorite vintage dish towel from my Gram’s kitchen. I love the barnyard theme!

The finished cottage cheese, with a sprinkle of salt…I devoured this serving promptly after snapping the photo. :) My Grandma P used to milk her own cow when my Mom was little. She used the fresh milk for drinking and making her own cottage cheese and butter from the cream. To this day my Mom remembers how good the homemade cottage cheese was.

I used this same dish towel in some photos I took of my freshly canned veggies last summer. Can you tell I’m partial to this print?

I think the little rooster hunting down some apples for lunch is so cute. :)
