Trying my hand at drying some Malabar Spinach seeds!

"Every time I've seen someone trying to dry seeds, it's on paper towel like you're doing.  Just go with what works, I say."

"We can be novices together Sid.  Until this year, I was the 'you can grow it? I can kill it' person.  Decided to get serious this year and so far, it's been so much fun.  Looking forward to checking out your photos."

First attempt at making yoghurt

"The second batch was much thicker and didn't separate this time.  I only use a teensy bit of the culture Dave, a tablespoon would be equal to about 100 batches lol.  I realise you're talking about yoghurt, not the bacteria. …"

First attempt at making yoghurt

"Culture is an inoculant. Like the flu. Once infected the medium takes off. Adding more isn't necessarily better. In a normal pre-prepped /heated milk medium, one tablespoon is sufficient. Rather than buying cultures, you can make yogurt from…"

First attempt at making yoghurt

"Calcium chloride does two things - it adds calcium back to pasturised milk which helps set and is also acidic (so it helps with the split).   My advice is do NOT DOUBLE THE CULTURE!  It is being wasteful and provides no benefit. …"

"I look forward to updates on the latest batch, Che. I hadn't heard about the calcium chloride thing, so I think I might give that a go (although there's nothing much wrong with my yoghurt currently, I'm always looking for shortcuts)."

First attempt at making yoghurt

"Christa, yes it did set harder in the fridge over night when it separated from liquid.  I did get the culture from green living.  I've played around with how I make the second batch, including twice as much culture this time. …"

First attempt at making yoghurt

"Rob, I found after it had set in the fridge over night that it was firmer, after I mixed the liquid back in it went thinner again.  I came across someone who said if you add the calcium chloride before heating milk and then hold the heat at 90…"

First attempt at making yoghurt

I've tried the easiyo maker, but never had great success with it, so thought I'd splash out on an electric one. Turned out a little thin (adding powdered milk next time), but over all, tasted like a mild traditional greek yoghurt. Looking forward to…

"No chooks here either. If scarab grubs turn up in my pots I just transfer them to the open ground. They are native animals and only become a pest when there's too many of them in too small a space."

"Looks great Che, they often set harder. Do you buy the culture from Green Living as well?  One sachet can make heaps of yoghurt.    "

Good Evening Che, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). you will learn a lot on BLF I'm sure, I know I did even though I am trained in some areas of Horticulture, it doesn't mean you can't lern more especially at the Garden Visits.

Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One is these is the GARDEN VISITS, 2018 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR. I am sure you would enjoy visiting our member’s gardens. We have members who grow many different kinds of Gardens, Permaculture, Aquaculture, Wicking Beds, Traditional and many more. The GV's are usually held once a month. At the GV's we share cuttings, plants, produce, seeds, knowledge as well as a good chat and a lovely Homemade Morning Teas. 

We have many subjects of interest, if you have any questions I am sure we would have a member or site available to answer that question. If you feel you are particularly adept in a field you may like to add a new Group to our List or perhaps do a talk or demonstration at one of our GV. If a yes for the GV you might like to friend me and we can see what we can do. We are always looking for new ideas.

You may like to go into your page and change the Pea Leaf Avatar for one of your own, it makes it a little more personal and as soon as we see your own Avatar we know who it is. Please enjoy BLF…..
