More Sustainable Living

Ricotta Cheese
Although I wrapped up my sustainable living series a while back, I still seek new ways to reduce my impact on the earth.  I found a couple of posts on The Plastic-Free Chef that I found intriguing.  One post is about making your own cottage cheese; the other is about making your own ricotta cheese (using homemade buttermilk).  Both sound simple - and help cut down on plastic containers.  I haven't tried these recipes but plan to do so in the near future.  For the gourmets out there, she also has a recipe for homemade crème fraîche using the homemade buttermilk.  Bon appetit!
