Cheese and Charcuterie

Today I finally ordered my cheese making supplies and sausage making goodies :)
I used these two websites...

Why order online? Because I hadn't the faintest idea where to purchase any of those supplies here in Edmonton. A little research on other blogs (buttonsoup and kevinkossowan) suggested that the place they were getting some of their supplies from either moved or went out of business.

I'm happy with what I picked up and excited to finally get my butt organized enough to do this!
When my packages come in I'll give a much better listing of what I purchased. Until then, wait in suspense! ;)

Now, to clean up the basement and get my cellar up... October is a busy month... but i think if we plan it right and start picking up supplies now, we should be in good form to build at the beginning of November.

Better late than never? I think so... :)

Now, to find a dairy farmer that can sell milk... pasturized is fine with me, i know they probably can't legally sell raw milk. (Trade, maybe :) )


  1. I have just stumbled upon your bog, I applaud you on your efforts to live local and sustainably. Good luck with the cheese making, I have been making my own cheese for about 2 years now. It has been fun and challenging.

    There are some local sources for rennet and some substitutes for store cultures as well. I can get you a list if you want

  2. Thanks so much!
    I actually just got in my order of cheese making supplies. I'm very excited to start :)
    I checked out your blog, your cheeses look wonderful!
