Default Home Made Mozzarella for sale?

Do we have any cheese makers on here that would be interested in selling a few pounds of homemade mozzarella cheese? I attempted making some and it was a disaster. But I can't find quality Mozz locally other than the cheap fake stuff that burns in our high temp ovens.

anyone????

We make our own Mozzarella all the time. If I thought I could ship it i would send it to you no charge...what went so wrong? We teach classes and I find the number one reason people fail at making mozz is they use an aluminum pan! Go to our blog and check out the step by step instructions with photos. I hope that helps!

And if you are ever in the RI area stop by for a lesson!!!

I think my biggest struggle was regulating the temperature, burned the milk first time, second attempt It never curded, I don't think I had the right type of rennet maybe?
I'll check out your site, maybe I'll get inspired to try again...

Hi Joey!

You can also order cheese curd to make your mozz with. I have used Polly-O for years. A good product. Probably a bit hard to locate in North Lousiana but can be shipped in 21 pound bags. I used to order it and cut it into 2 pound chunks and freeze it. (That makes it more economical rather than shipping a small amount.)

Good news is I have found a local source so now I can get it in smaller quanitities.

Joey,

The trick is to be patient and willing to spoil a batch or two. I used Rikkis recipe and failed miserably -> My nuker is not a 1000 watt unit by any stretch (oh, a pun, not intended.)

If you are interested - go to this site:

CheeseForum.org

This is the holy grail for new and experienced cheese makers - Kind of like this is the place for brick ovens and Za!

My kids like the argentinian cheese - only aged 2 weeks but flavorful and melts wonderful! I use the home made culture route of butter milk or yoghurt.

Best o luck

Chris

the citric acid is the same stuff they put on sour candy.

I just got something in the mail I ordered from the Wisconsin Cheese Board (free). They have a lot of small cheesemakers there. I'd list some, but I haven't tried anything yet.

Good luck!

ok, another failure.
let's dissect my latest one...

the milk:


and this is when I was supposed to be seeing whey and scooping out the curds. All I saw was cottage cheese. whey never appeared.


I used Chef's recipe,
these are the ingredients:
1 gallon of milk
1 tablet of rennet
1/2 teaspoon of lipase
3 tspns of citric acid.

I reached the 90f temp and added the rennet and went on up to 105...nothing but cottage cheese...another gallon of milk down the drain literally.
