Say ‘cheese’

The mozzarella recipe in Kingsolver’s book can also be found at the New England Cheesemaking Supply Company website (www.cheesemaking.com). The website provides step-by-step directions with photographs for “Ricki’s 30 Minute Mozzarella,” which can be made with just a gallon of store-bought milk, unchlorinated water, citric acid and rennet—the composite of enzymes used in cheese making to coagulate the milk.

Gathering the ingredients was simple after I located the rennet—my search for rennet ended at The Good Earth Health Food Store in Callicoon, NY, which graciously ordered it for me.
