a good curd
Tour for Will, Latrice, and Kathy (mom) this morning. Had a great long visit with them - topped off with 4 tshirts sold and a generous contribution to the BenFund. Thank You! Maybe Carl will stop attacking visitors if I start a fund for him.
Windy and cloudy so I headed south to do some much needed laundry. Tried my second batch of cheese this afternoon. We have mozzarella now. Used the instructions from the link I posted before and got an exceptional curd using 1 1/2 tablets of Junket rennet (instead of 1/4). Just added one teaspoon of salt and no extra stuff. Checked a sample before I wrapped it for the fridge - taste and texture just like the real thing. I guess that is because it is the real thing. 66,76,49,0,W, .20
