The right tool for the right job makes ALL the difference to the craftsman!
For instance, my gizmo for hang-drying (separating the curd from the whey) my soft cheese…BEFORE:
For several years, this has been my make-do cheese draining apparatus: butter muslin containing the soft cheese, suspended from a wood dowel between two boxes of pasta. ( BTW, you can only use the pasta boxes so many times before they finally ‘give whey’ – pun intended! – to the weight of the cheese!)
Thanks to handy-man hubby, my AFTER cheese drying apparatus:
A simple block of scrap wood ( I still want to apply some mineral oil to the surface), specially made to fit over the lip of my SS pot!
It doesn’t take much to make this old gal HAPPY!
