Ravenna - The Portage County Gardeners recently held a mozzarella cheese making workshop. Fifteen people took the class instructed by Marilyn Tyger and Helena Parry.
After cooking up the milk and other cheese making ingredients, the group had to persevere to get the curds to finally process into cheese. Sarah Perdue and Mary Jo Ryan were given a round of applause as they finally got their curds to form into some cheese. All of the participants were given cheese making ingredients and recipes to take home to make their own cheese. The instructors also provided samples of mozzarella to taste along with fresh garden tomatoes and zucchini from the Parry garden. Tyger prepared her dip mixes for tasting as well.
The next event of the PCGC is a canning workshop on Aug. 9 from 10 a.m. to noon.
Also on Aug. 9 the PCGC will hold a Mink Shed/Garage Sale from 9am.- 2p.m. Slate roof shingles, basket reed, crafting supplies,bottle tree kits and much more will be available. For further information call Diane Jendrisak 330-673-4982 or Mary Jo Ryan 330-296-3633.
