com Caprese Salad with Homemade 5-minute Raw Mozzarella
Yield: 1 serving 1 quart organic raw milk 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice 1 organic small/medium red tomato 1 ½ teaspoons minced fresh, organic basil, about 5 leaves Organic extra virgin olive oil Celtic sea salt (optional) Black pepper Organic, raw balsamic vinegar 1. Heat quart of milk to a maximum of 102 degrees ( a cow's body temperature). Stir constantly to prevent scorching. 2. Add lemon juice to milk and stir several times to mix thoroughly. 3. Once milk fully separates into a clear yellow liquid (whey) and white chunky substance (curds/cheese), remove from burner. If it doesn’t separate or separate all the way, add more lemon juice until it does. 4. Scoop and squeeze curds together with your hands until all or most of the curds stick together. 5. Pour whey/curd mixture through a fine-mesh strainer. 6. Add enough salt to taste (optional), about1/8 tsp. Squeeze the rest of the whey out of the curds with your hands. Press curds into to 2 flat discs and set aside. Reserve whey for another use. See note. 7. Slice tomato horizontally into ¼ inch rounds. 8. Mix minced basil with olive oil. 9. Alternate slices of tomato with mozzarella, dribble the basil/olive oil mixture between each layer. 10. Top with remaining basil/olive oil mixture, pinch of black pepper and balsamic vinegar. NOTE: You can refrigerate whey and use as a natural sports drink. Or store in a dark cabinet until it turns into vinegar and use for sauces and salad dressings. Homemade Ricotta Cheese Yield: 1 cup Follow mozzarella recipe through step 5, increasing lemon juice to 3 cups. Use as filling for lasagna or cheesecake.
Natural Sports Drink (Whey-Ade)
3 cups whey (from mozzarella recipe) 1/8 cup of lemon or lime juice 2 Tbsps. (1 Tbsp. if adding strawberries) Of Honey Pacifica™ Creamy Wildflower Raw Honey ¼ cup strawberries (optional)
1. Take remaining whey from mozzarella recipe and strain through a fine mesh
cheesecloth or T-shirt to remove as much cheese as possible. If a cheesecloth or T-shirt is unavailable, use a fine mesh strainer. 2. Place all ingredients in blender, adding the honey last. This is done to make sure that the honey doesn’t immediately sink to the bottom and not blend. Blend on high for 8 seconds or until evenly mixed through. 3. Store in refrigerator and enjoy. Whey is a great for pre and post workouts. It is extremely absorbable into the system and has protein. When raw honey is added, it energizes without the familiar crash at the end that is commonly associated with sugar and corn syrup based energy drinks.
