We took the plunge into cheese making today.
|First you heat up the milk.|
|And you have your helper check it with the thermometer,|
you're looking for 85 degrees, first, then you add the citric acid.
|This is how Ian smiled when I said, "look like you're having fun!"|
|This is about half-way through the curdling process.|
|Kneading & smoothing.|
|After chilling for an hour in the fridge.|
|On homemade pizza (and stromboli) for dinner!|
PS- you don't need the cheese making kit, but it was an easy way to get all the necessary ingredients. I probably won't buy another kit now that I know what I need and how to do it. I also probably won't take up cheese making as part of our daily life here on the homestead... but we will do it again.
