Just to prove to myself the first shot wasn't a fluke, I grabbed another gallon of whole, organic milk at my local farm today. And...



Same process as before, I just upped the salt to 1 1/2tsp from the 1tsp I used last time. Haven't tasted it yet, report to follow.

Since I hate wasting food (and milk is expensive!) I decided to try making ricotta from the whey. Pretty easy - get the whey up to 200F, let it sit for 5 minutes, pour through a cloth, hang to drain.











It's still draining now, so I'll post up the results when I have them!

The ricotta came out great! Mild flavor, but definitely ricotta and very yummy.



For lunch I made grilled cheeze with the fresh mozz, bacon and tomato from the same farm. So good!
