Curds And Whey

What can match the tasty goodness of a truly good beer? Could it be cheese?

Life is definitely better with cheese. Only the lactose intolerant would say otherwise, and we wouldn't want to be intolerant would we?

The old nursery rhyme Little Miss Muffet features a girl eating curds and whey. What the heck are curds and whey anyhow? If you've ever seen cottage cheese, those are curds; the juice is whey.
Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider,
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.
Here is a picture of Mozzarella curds and whey from Apparently, you can make your own Mozzarella cheese in about 30 minutes with cold milk and a little citric acid. Could this be the new food obsession?

Most other cheeses are made on the order of weeks, months, or even years. I'm not sure we have the patience for that. Wegmans, here I come.
