You Grow Your Own Food? Harvest 6-30-12


You Make Your Own Food? Mozzarella time!

Made some mozzarella cheese for homemade pizza tonight.

The ball. I probably could have stretched it a little longer, but it was good still.

It sliced nicely.

Ready for pizza!

I reheated the whey with some vinegar and have poured it through a colander lined with paper towels for a little ricotta. Some of the whey went into the dough. The rest will be used in smoothies and whatever other cooking we can find for it.
