I just had a total out of my mind moment. I was at Hancock fabrics looking for cheesecloth. With making the mozzerella I go through a ton...sometimes 5 yards a week. So I go into Hancock looking for a larger amount then just buying the cheap packaged stuff in the baking aisle at the grocery store. I go up to the register to buy the whole box, which is 100 yards. The two cashiers looked at me a little surprised. Because really who in their right mind buys 300 feet of cheesecloth? The convo went a little something like this:
Cashier 1: "Wow this is a lot of cheesecloth, what do you plan on doing with it?"
Me: "Oh, I make cheese."
Cashier 1:(in a little bit of awe) "What!?! You make cheese, I love cheese! What kind?"
Cashier 2: "Really?? I used to make cottage cheese all the time, but that's easy. Do you sell it?"
Me: "Um, I hadn't really thought about it...."
Cashier 2: "Well would you consider it.."
Me: (still completely shocked): "Um, yeah, I guess. Let me give you my business card."
Cashier 1: (still in awe) "I love cheese!"
Cashier 2: "I will be calling you. How much do you charge?"
Me: "Uhhhh, I'll have to think about that. Just let me know when you want some."
The moral of the story...people LOVE cheese. And the are convinced they will love your homemade cheese even if they have never had it.
