Last night we had a few of our neighbors over for a cheese making party. We supplied the cheese making supplies from the New England Cheese Company, and beverages and asked everyone to bring an appetizer. What a success! We learned how to make mozzarella and ricotta cheese. Jokes were flying, and the guys had fun trying to shape the mozzarella into balls. Harder said than done. One added basil to his crescent moon shaped mozzarella, one ended up with something that resembled a turkey, another was some sort of flatten log and finally one that actually was in the shape of a proper mozzarella ball. Good times.
Next time, whatever the next get together is, I think I’ll ask everyone to bring something local to share. Everyone likes the idea of a “still” party. Who knows, we might be making local moonshine the next time around!
