My Middle Name is Sargento

Like I said yesterday, I am now a cheese maker. I would like to take this time to formally apologize to Barber's milk company for blaming them for the lack of curdling in the cheese making process. It was my fault, I didnt stir fast enough.
So it starts like this, I called Healthwise Foods because I was convinced that I needed local milk. They said that a gallon of milk from Dothan is $8.99! Can you believe that? After hearing that I gave up until I walked into Costco... $2.50 for a gallon of milk!  So right then and there my spirits were lifted. I figured their milk is from Nashville which is local for someone so it worked for me.
On with the story. I came home and got to work and 30 minutes later I had some great tasting mozzarella cheese. I don't have any pictures because this, again, was a late night project and my ball of cheese was not pretty. I have got to work on that.

Mozzarella is so easy to make and you don't have to sit around while it ages either. I used this kit from I'm really glad I ordered it because it has everything you need in it along with some great directions and recipes but now that I kind of know what I'm doing I will probably just buy the ingredients since that is a bit cheaper. Tonight is pizza night with  my homemade pizza crust ( I will share the recipe later) and homemade mozzarella. If you are in the neighborhood, stop by and I'll give you a sample just like they do at Costco!

Please go out and try it and let me know how it goes. Montgomery could become the new Wisconsin after all!


  1. Hey home slice... you officially crack me up! This is awesome!

  2. Beer pizza dough, by chance?! :) It's really good, but if you have a tried and true recipe, I say don't mess with a good thing!

  3. Did he say "blessed are the cheesemakers?"
