Cooking with kids is a great activity when there’s a snow day and cabin fever threatens. Ricki Carroll, better known as the Cheese Queen, ran a post on teaching preschoolers how cheese is made. They made a batch of Mozzarella together, then peeled it apart to make string cheese — lots of opportunity for hands-on fun!
The post includes many photos detailing the cheesemaking set up and process. Just make sure the milk you use is raw or pasteurized, not ultra-pasteurized. To read Ricki’s post on making cheese with kids >
