Cheese! 

This weekend I made cheese. I used my liquid rennet, butter muslin and cheese mould that Dawn and Matt gave me as a gift. 

First I made rennet cheese.

I followed this lady’s instructions but left my curds for 30 minutes to become a bit squeaky. 

From the curds we made 4 dishes. 

Curds and fruit. Ok.

Poutine! Oh yes. 

Curds with gravy and fries. Super yum

Chilli curds. Great. Eaten so fast I forgot to photo 😦

Then from the whey I made whey ricotta. 

The whey yielded enough fine ricotta for a savoury starter and sweet dessert dish.
