We made somewhere between 1100 and 1200 bars this year's show. That lasted until Monday afternoon when we sold out. Not sure how many batches that was, but we have 26 batches curing for next year's show. That's a good start.
I know that Jean and Harold took some pictures,and so did lots of our guests.
It's amazing what can be accomplished with lots of hands helping. A big thanks to everyone who rendered fat, made soap, wrapped soap and sold soap. Remember, "The dirt is free at Rollag, but the soap costs $1!" Go Cody!
The only variation we have on soap is minor fluctuation in the lard, tallow turkey grease ratio. We don't normally scent any of the soap; our grandmothers didn't either. This year we did scent one batch with orange, so we'll see if there is any smell left by next year's show.
Jane took some of the soap scraps last year to make French milled soap. That was sold in the boutique with all kinds of lovely scents.
