I knew this second try at cheese-making would be more successful than the first one. This time, I added fresh herbs from the garden as well as some salt. I also actually squeezed the cheese in the cloth rather than just let it sit with a heavy pot on top. When I first tasted this cheese, I exclaimed aloud, "Oh my god. Oh. My. God" (and then felt extremely compelled to call my sister and my husband). It was that good. The dinner salad was fantastic with strawberries from the garden, spinach from the garden, walnuts, a balsamic vinaigrette and the panko and herb encrusted cheese fritter. A meal I was quite proud of through and through!
We're solidly in the middle of strawberry season, and this year, I'm not making jam with the large bowlfuls, but freezing them in small bags. I know I'll be thankful later when we want smoothies, pancakes, or simply some frozen fruit to snack on.
