Squirrel S Home Made Mozzeralla Cheese

  Homemade mozzarella is really easy to make. There are certain steps than can cause success or failure. The recipe I use comes from Home Cheese Making by Ricki Carroll. This is a great book for beginners. I make a few changes, and as you become more comfortable making this cheese you too may want to make your own changes. Let’s start with what you’ll need:   Milk - I purchase whole pastuerized, non-homogenized fresh, local milk.

Tuna Grilling Marinade

This is awesome for grilling tuna, wahoo, yellowtail, albacore and such. Take 2 cups blush wine, 1/2 pound of unsalted butter, 1/8 cup chopped garlic, and 2 tbs. fresh or dried dill, fresh is way better. Melt it all in a sauce pan and remove from heat, you don't want it to hot. Then take your fish and dip in the marinade and get it on the grill over some apple wood, before you flip it over dip it again. Put a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime on top and maybe some wasabi sauce. read more › Articles
