With all our fresh tomatoes and basil I started thinking about caprese salad. All I needed was some fresh mozzarella cheese to go with it. I got it in my head to make some. I remembered seeing it made on TV and started hunting down recipes. I needed rennet and ascorbic acid which was nowhere to be found but the internet is a lovely thing and I was able to aquire those two items. The only other ingredient I needed was whole milk. The only requirement for the milk was that it wasn't ultra-pasteurized. I went to Sprouts and found raw milk. It was a bit more expensive than I expected but if I was going to make cheese I was going to do it right.
My cheese. Isn't it cute!!
And my caprese salad.
I will be making cheese again and again.
