This is not a political rant. :-)
On a local radio gardening program (2GB here in Sydney) a caller asked
was there a home-grown substitute for setting milk when making cottage
cheese. (This need has been forced on us because most of the two major
supermarket-chain stores have removed junket tablets from their shelves;
not a profitable line.)
Another caller recounted how, in times of shortage during the war, her
mother would stir the warming milk with a twig from their fig tree
(edible figs) and this would cause the milk to set (albeit not smoothly).
The chosen twig was about the thickness of a finger and was first
prepared by having its bark peeled off.
Anyone have other plant-based suggestions?
