Cheesey Weekend

Good Monday Morning!

I had a fantastic weekend making mozzarella and bread. I didn’t get around to making the liquid soap that has been on my to-do list for the past several weeks, nor the tie dying. It was, none the less a very wonderful weekend.

Here are some photos of the yummy cheese making experiment.

Here we have the curds setting up. They are in cubes because I sliced them to make them easier to scoop out :)

Here are the curds after a night of hanging in the cheese clothe to get as much whey out as possible. At this stage it was very crumbly!

Here is the finished cheese! See how it is shiny and more "plastic" looking than the previous photo? That is because I kneaded it and soaked it in hot water until it had the delicious mozzarella consistency.

I made a delicious wheat bread with my fresh mozzarella, about a cup of chopped garlic, and oregano. It was fabulous! It didn't last long...
