I love getting packages, even if I ordered them. Today I opened the package that arrived and I was inordinately excited to receive this:
They were $9.99 but I got them for half that with another gift card from swagbucks.
I’ve been muddling through with grocery store cheesecloths but they just weren’t cutting it. The homemade yogurt I make is delicious, but a little more runny than I like, and when I try to strain it through the regular huge-holey cheesecloth (even quadrupled or folded in eighths), it just sort of smears itself everywhere and never really strains. I feel like I lose a lot of yogurt that way and it doesn’t get that nice greek yogurt consistency.
I wasted no time tearing open the package and rinsing the cloths in vinegar water so I could use them right away.
Then I used one to line a strainer, dumped a quart of fresh homemade yogurt in,
and hung the other three on the line to dry.
I fully realize it’s crazy to be so excited about some square pieces of plain cotton. That doesn’t stop me from grinning.
Now if only I can keep everyone from using these to wipe the floor or hold their rocks…
