Today we made Mozzarella cheese and cheddar crackers for our buffet on Friday. We would have gotten out super early, but Tim and I decided not to waste the whey from another cheese we made, so we made some ricotta to take home.

We also ate the bacon that the class cured last week. It was smoked and very intense bacon. I've never had bacon like that before, not even at school. Since we got out early, some of us stayed to make eggs and tortillas while Tim and I finished up the ricotta.

I've never made cheese before! I didn't know it was so easy; the only problem is that it takes a ton of milk to make just a bit of cheese. I think 90% of the milk ends up being whey, just 10% curd to make cheese. It's fun, though!
