Cheese!

Mozzarella cheese. I'm pleased with my first attempt. It didn't go exactly like the instructions said but turned out alright in the end. Oh, and I must get me some rubber gloves - ooh, matron. The kneading, stretching phase only works when it's hot. The instructions said I'd need the rubber gloves but I didn't have any.

Anyway, after a few short zaps in the microwave, some stretching as best I could manage without burning myself and a sprinkle of mixed herbs, it went from lumpy yuck to smooth herby mozzarella. It maybe ended up going a little stiff - ssh, stop it - but now I know how the process works hopefully I can completely nail it next time. Oh, and it tasted alright too, topping off my sourdough base pizza.
