Make Mozzarella "Easter Eggs"
Make something fun and special for your Easter celebration this year -- mozzarella "Easter eggs." Use our One-Hour Mozzarella & Ricotta kit to make your own mozzarella in less than an hour. Mix food coloring into the milk before setting it, or put the food coloring in brine with a little vinegar to make several different colors of "eggs." Put the "eggs" in a spring green salad for a fun Easter brunch, served of course with homemade sparkling wine mimosas!
Now in stock at Curds and Wine: super industrial-strength Heat Resistant Gloves in medium and large. Great for pulling your hot mozzarella curds!
