Those who guessed I was making cheese . . specifically mozzarella, were correct.
There’s no plan yet for the whey but I’ll pour it into jars and freeze it and use it for pancakes or bread, or . . the chickens love it! I’m so happy to have a source for raw milk again. Vince promises he’s going to clean my cheese press but I think he’s been promising that for several years. It isn’t like he sits around with nothing to do so I’m not complaining.
In addition to making cheese this morning, I made Lemon Ricotta Cookies. OK . . so Giada’s are nice and perfectly round and mine kinda haphazardly landed on the cookie sheet . . mine are still delicious!
The sourdough has been divided and fed. I want to have plenty of starter so that when the grill arrives, I can practice making bread in it.
Just to prove that I’m not always so great in the kitchen, I kinda scorched Vince’s grilled cheese sandwich!
I wish all my problems were so easily solved . . just flip the not so dark side on top so the scorched side doesn’t show. If you can’t see it, it’s not a problem!
Heck . . even the good side is a little blemished. Looks like a little bit of mozzarella got stuck to the bread and there’s some melted mozzarella on the outside of the bread. That’s ok . . it was still a good sandwich according to Vince!
