We Made Cheese!

The items needed to make cheese
The curds and whey
Seperating the curds into cheesecloth
hanging the cheesecloth above the stockpot to drip away excess whey
The cheese!

We were eating cheese the other night and the kids said, "Hey, I wonder how cheese is made." Aha, a perfect moment to jump on. We went to the computer and watched the first youtube video about cheese making that we found. It was how to make Farmers Cheese. It looked so easy that we decided to go the next day and grab the "goods" to make it ourselves. Everyone took turns making it. It was a ton of fun. You can find exact ingredients and the youtube movie on foodwishes.org. Oh and the cheese was VERY tasty!

I like to add fresh chives, salt, and pepper and then eat it on crackers. Yum.
