A few months back, I posted about my balcony garden inspired by Barbara Kingsolver's book "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle".
In addition to growing vegetables to live on for an entire year, in her book Kingsolver described all her lovely cheese-making family bonding times and made it sound super fun to stretch and braid cheese in your own kitchen.
So, for my new challenge today, I made my own mozzarella cheese from scratch. I used this kit my husband gave me for Xmas last year, ordered from Amazon.
So, would I call it a success?
Well, I certainly felt like a cheese making queen while I doing it...
but at the end, I held in my hand this little tiny ball of gooey curds. Hmmm... do you think I did something wrong?
The cartoon lady and the flying cow on the box promised me delicious cheese in only 30 minutes, but I all I got was this kitchen to clean afterwards.
