There are many types of cheese and just as many methods for making it.
Nutrition facts: 103 calories per serving, 8 grams fat

Ingredients

8 cups pasteurized goat milk
1/8 teaspoon direct-set mesophilic starter culture
1/8 teaspoon liquid animal rennet
1 tablespoon cold water
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt


Directions

Slowly heat goat milk in a large saucepan over low heat, stirring often, until the temperature is 90 degrees, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, sprinkle culture over surface of the milk and gently stir until combined. 

Dilute rennet in water, then stir into goat milk until well combined. Cover and let sit, undisturbed, at room temperature until mixture fully separates into solid curds and translucent whey, 12- 24 hours. Line a colander with cheesecloth and ladle curds into the prepared colander and let drain 2-4 hours, until whey no longer runs freely from the colander, and curds are thickened but still moist. 


Transfer drained cheese to medium bowl, stir in salt, and divide cheese in half. Working with one-half at a time, bundle cheese in cheesecloth, then tie to secure. Tie cheese bundles to a wooden dowel or spoon and place over a deep large container to drain upside down. Make sure the cheese bundles do not touch the bottom of the container, Refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours and enjoy. 


Take your cheese making a step further and roll your homemade goat cheese into your choice herbs such as dried chives, red pepper or basil.


What is rennet and mesophilic

Rennet is used to separate milk into solid curds for cheese making and mesophilic is a non-heat loving culture and is used for making cheeses that are not heated.

Survival of the Fattest Meaning
The copper statue Survival of the Fattest by Jens Galschiøt and Lars Calmar was created in 2002. The fat woman is holding a pair of scales as a symbol of justice however; she is closing her eyes so the justice. Galschiot symbolized the woman as being blind, refusing to see the obvious injustice.
For the rich people of the world the main issue in life is that of overeating while people in the third world are dying every day from hunger.
