November 5, 2012 – Good, Clean, Fun!

This weekend we went over to Morning Sun Farm and had a group soap-making session.  All told, we made four batches of soap, so our share was two batches.

This is the real lye and fat soap, with a little goat milk.  The soap sets up over night and needs to be cut the next day.

Here’s the view after one block was cut and the other awaits the soap cutter.  It needs to sit for about six weeks before use, to make sure the chemical reaction from fat and lye to soap is complete.  This is great soap and it’s hard to live without it once you use it.
