They are so cute!
It’s actually very nice to have a very clean house. I even organized my pantry! Most importantly, all of the work surfaces in my soaping area are cleared of clutter and ready to go for non-soap B&B making after the company leaves.
Did Laura Ingalls Wilder cook up a bit of wild game on the prairie?I am chanelling my inner “little house on the prairie” vibe today (with a nod to all my soapy American friends - happy Thanksgiving wishes from !). My husband is a hunter and this year, as I have started to make soap, he has brought me goose fat and deer fat from his hunts! We have rendered a bunch of pork fat but this is my first time rendering fat from wild game. The deer fat has quite a strong smell - kind of like I have a roast in the oven. Hoping once it’s rendered the scent will be less obvious, or I will be making a lot of “venison stew” soaps. Next up - goose fat to be rendered.
My other soaping project was label making. Because almost every soap I make is from a different recipe (I’m still experimenting), label making is an onerous and loooong process. But hey! If I wasn’t doing this I’d be doing something else. And now my labels are DONE!! Jane for the win!
Weeeelll - it’s been a while since I sat down with Laura to read her books but I remember reading about Pa shooting a bear! And there were descriptions of dispatching the pig and using every little bit. I’m sure they rendered the fat - and made soapDid Laura Ingalls Wilder cook up a bit of wild game on the prairie?
Nice! What additive did you use to create the speckles.
I mostly use dual lye these last months and have never had either separation or ricing. There must be some other reason IMO.... All of my cups have oil separation. I am so disappointed. They do not look sellable imo.
Could it be because of the koh? I am using dual lye. Back to the drawing board. I won't have more coconut oil until Monday.
