I made something that I fell in love with while visiting my daughter in Iowa, which was squeaky cheese (a white cheddar). I had told my husband about how good it was and how funny it was to eat and hear the squeaks. My main quest for making cheese is to make my own mozzarella though.
Interesting link you provided. I wonder if his 2 fig trees are the same variety? Can anyone tell? He does not mention which type of fig and it's hard to see the leaves in the second photo.
I did see further down a response where someone was giving whey to their blackberries.
Guess I will give it a try this year on 2 identical figs and report back later.
