Lately I've been loving making my own ‘things’...It started with the sleep salve, bagels, and croissants and after that I became unstoppable. Somehow concocting things on my own makes me feel like I’m nourishing myself and my family in a way that I haven’t before.
I've been thinking about making a fresh mozzarella for a while now but since I found the process a bit intimidating, I never got the courage to do it myself - till yesterday, that is. In the morning Balazs got a call that he has to do an urgent translation, so I instinctively knew what I'd be up to that day. I had all the specific ingredients at home so I popped out for milk and spent my morning making mozzarella from scratch while listening to Adele in the background. Interestingly enough it wasn't hard at all. It felt very organic, like making almond milk. You know what they say, when you try a homemade mozzarella once, you will never want to go back to the store-bought stuff :) It is so true! Here is the recipe. I followed it to the T! xo
P.S: Caprese sandwich 2.0!
P.P.S: Ham + mozzarella + egg omelette + lemon curd = sandwich perfection!
