Default Cheesy subject...

I just did a bit of searching and it is really easy to make mozzarella. Use whatever kind of milk you like. I used to make chevre at home back inthe day we had milking goats... Great stuff.

Who will be the first to do it, and share their photos....? :-)

Did everyone see our photos of the small Mozzarella producer outside Naples. They made it look easy.

You got it.. this evening, I'll write up a detailed post relating the recipe I have followed on several occasions and a few resources to do it yourself.

It's really quite simple, you use milk, citric acid, and some mesophilic starter and in less than 30 minutes, you're pulling and kneading the hot cheese to get the mozzeralla texture you want. The rest is being patient enough for it to cool down and eat. We have a hard time with that step!

We've also taken the leftover whey and made pizza crust from it.

I have no pics, but that can be remedied the next time we make the cheese!
