What distinguishes a superior fresh mozzarella from the rest of the pack? Above all, taste. The cheese should taste fresh and reminiscent of milk. It should be mild and delicate. There should be a hint of sourness and the color should be white. The fresher the cheese, the more elastic and springy the curd. In this class you will learn how to make fresh whole milk mozzarella using fresh-from-the-farm raw cow's milk from Highview Farm in Harrison, Maine, that is heated along with citric acid and rennet. Take home the cheese you created. Fresh mozzarella should be stored in your refrigerator.
Class Duration: 2 Hours
Why not treat your skin to the luxury of handcrafted soap made the way nature intended? Old School Creamery will teach you how to make your own Cold Process Goat Milk Soap, using only premium ingredients and no preservatives, for a truly luxurious difference you can feel with your own hands. Less costly recipes are available, but we feel if you are working with the best milk Mother Nature provides, it doesn't make sense to skimp with cheaper ingredients, such as vegetable shortening and chemical additives. A bar of homemade Goat Milk Soap is a thing of beauty that far surpasses commercial bar soap. This is due in part to the creative energy and thought that goes into making it, but mostly it comes from the milk itself—a perfect gift of Mother Nature that produces soap closer to your skin's natural pH levels and is therefore less drying than most commercially prepared soaps. With its natural light cream color, beautiful on its own or as a bare pallet for other natural colors; scented or natural, Cold Process Goat Milk Soap is a bubbly luxury you can create and experience with your own hands.
