It's easier than you might think...I know I was a bit nervous going into it.  Something about pouring vinegar into milk is very unsettling, but the result was tasty and I will definitely do this again!



Recipe:
8 cups whole milk
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1-1.5 teaspoon kosher salt

Tools:
Thermometer
fine mesh seive
clean kitchen towel
cheese press- I improvised and used a bowl, you can too

For more info, pictures and directions see the tutorial here: http://ladiesofcomicazi.com/2013/03/27/how-to-i-made-cheese-gromit/

I see it! Cheesy

I had the pleasure of learning to make mozzarella cheese with our mod, MissingWillow this past summer!

Similar process...it was fun and tasty, and pretty addicting!

Looks like you have a new dish to serve to family and friends!

Actually MissingWillow helped me with the pic as well! 
It was pretty fun to make and definitely makes you feel fancy when you serve it up to friends. This particular cheese went to a garden party!

Thanks for your help with the pic!  I see you have sheep.  Do you use sheep milk for your cheese?

You're welcome!  Our sheep are for fleece and lamb but we also raise dairy goats.  I make chevre and feta from their milk.  I also purchase cow's milk at the grocery store for cheesemaking.  I plan to post a tutorial here on Craftster soon.   Smiley

I never imagined it would be so easy, but I might just need to try this out. I mean if it's that simple, then I don't really have much of an excuse Smiley
