Dear Heidi, Greetings once again from South Africa.
Thanks so much for your column - the BTD has changed my life and I so enjoy your witty comments and advice!
Two questions please: 1) What is Farmers Cheese - it is a neutral for O Secretors and 2) Could I have the name of a supplier in SA that stocks Dr D's blood type supplements?
Keep up the good work and many thanks, or in my language, "Hou vol met die goeie werk en baie dankie"! Kind regards, Amanda
Hello, Amanda ~ you're very kind, thank you for all that praise and encouragement!
Farmer's cheese is best described as cottage cheese without the whey (the watery portion). It is a light, thick, fresh cow's milk product with a very mild taste. It's quite similar to panir, or paneer, the Indian fresh milk cheese. By setting cottage cheese in a cheesecloth-covered sieve, over a bowl, pressing it down a bit, and leaving it in the refrigerator overnight, you can have something quite akin to farmer's cheese in the morning. ;-)
I do wish we had a NAP distributor in South Africa, as there are so many BTD enthusiasts there. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a distributor, do send a note to German Ramirez, and discuss what's involved. I think there is a significant untapped market there, from the cards & letters I receive!
Bless you, and keep in touch! :-D
