Sorry, Eve,-It's "If I do say so myself". "Myself" being only one word, I know.

Oh No! Another ice cream maker... and to know that I had one in my hands today...30% off and I didn't buy it! I was very proud of myself that I was wise and sensible...and without ice cream maker...there is a kilo of rhubarb on my kitchen counter.
If you'll excuse me, I'll go and bang my head against the wall.

I am also reading this book and agree with you. I find it to be very enjoyable without feeling like I have to rush off and start farming (which I used to long for). We seem to be at similar points in the book and I too am intrigued about making cheese, especially since there is a raw milk dairy up the road from me.

Our CSA does such a good job at growing vegetables that I have stopped doing so and converted my veg garden to fruits: rhubarb, peaches, cherries, plums, blueberries, strawberries, currants, gooseberries, raspberries, blackberries and elderberries. Mmmmmmm, summer is such a delicious time of year.

I read your review of Kingsolver's new book with great interest as I'm a big fan of the Poisonwood Bible too. I'm particularly glad she didn't fall into the trap of over-preaching her message, which is unfortunately a frequent shortcoming of similar books. I'll keep my eye out for this one.

As for your ice cream, it looks (and sounds) fantastic. If only Scotland would wake up to the idea of CSA... sigh.

Patricia Wells has a recipe for fresh homemade cheese in The Provence Cookbook. It takes about an hour to transform 2 quarts of milks into about two cups of the most amazing ricotta... not counting the hours spent daydreaming of moving to France to learn cheesemaking. Great fun, and absolutely delicious cheese.

Just this evening I began reading Animal,Vegetable, when I got this sudden urge to read your blog. You can bet I was blown away when I saw that your latest entry was on just that. Some eerie cosmic connection.

You may also enjoy reading her "Prodigal Summer" which I find myself rereading every summer.

Hi,

I've been enjoying your blog for awhile, though I don't think I have commented. I've got you in my 'food blogs' blog roll.

Anyway, I've been reading and posting about AVM too and researching cheese-making. I already make yogurt cheese and it is pretty easy.

Best,

Suzanne

Hello,

My Husband loves Barbara Kingsolver and has read many if not all of her books. We just bought this one this weekend. I can't wait to take a look.
The ice cream looks great!

What with the stack of as-yet-unread books on my bedside table, I've so far resisted buying Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. I know that I will eventually give in, and your comments will likely make that date sooner rather than later.

There's a couple pounds of rhubarb in my kitchen; if only I had an ice cream maker...
