  • I had to come over and see what bocconcini were. I have never heard that name before. Is it a buffalo mozzarella? These canapes look wonderful! : )

    • Yes, they are typically buffalo mozzarella, but they are sometimes made with cows milk as well. Here is the wiki on bocconcini. They are so great with fresh tomatoes!
