Today I went to a cheese making workshop. Here is mozzarella being stretched.
Here are some of the things we made including butter and cheddar shown in the picture. We also made mozzarella, ricotta, cottage cheese and queso blanco. We got to taste some two month old Monterey Jack which might just be the best cheese I ever tasted. It was made from fresh milk from a cow fed on organic grass and unpasteurized. (The milk,not the cow, although when I think of it the cow probably hasn't been in the pasture all winter so maybe the cow is unpasturized too.) I was surprised at how easy it is to make cheese. There will be more fresh cheese around here soon.
