So this was a coincidence....One day Ott, E mentioned to me that he thought it would be fun to make our own cheese. Now I like being a DIY (Do-It-Yourself'er) in the kitchen as much as anyone, but making cheese seemed like it would be a bit much to me. But the guy did work in a cheesemaking factory in high school so I figured he knew a little something about the process. But as the same time I wasn't too sure about that. So I smiled, nodded and thought to myself..."we'll see."
Fast forward a couple of weeks and I discovered that Sur La Table has a whole line of DIY kitchen products from make your own bacon to butter to.... make your own mozzarella. Yes, that's right they have a Mozzarella cheese making kit. What luck!?!?! I couldn't wait to get Ott, E started on this project and cure his cheesemaking curiosities.
The process was easy and almost (dare I say) fun to do together, from separating the curds and whey to rolling the cheese balls. As you can see our mozzarella turned out great and we ended up with about 4 pounds of mozzarella. And we are very excited to start using that on some dinner dishes.
