  • Summary

    Homemade fresh mozzarella cheese has fabulous flavor. The instructions here for making your own at home are detailed but not difficult. Rennet and citric acid can be found in health food stores and specialty markets, mail order, and some pharmacies. (from Home Cheese Making by Ricki Carroll (Workman Publishing)) I made this and it's easy. If you can make pizza dough you can make this cheese, and you can basically make it in the time it takes for your dough to rise. Wow it is so much better than store bought. I'd give it 5 stars but I posted it so..... FYI fresh Mozzarella doesn't keep well and is best consumed the day it is made

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 rennet tablet
    • 1/4 cup cool chlorine-free water (most bottled waters are chlorine-free)
    • 1 gallon 2% low-fat milk (1%, or skim)
    • 2 teaspoons citric acid
    • 1 teaspoon salt (optional)
