cheese

Well, I made my first go at cheese makingÖ tried a one hour mozzerella recipe; it took more like an hour and a half with it being my first try (setup took a bit of time).


You start by heating the milk with acid and solidifiers (citric acid and rennet). As it heats the curds and whey separate. Once it reaches temp, you let it sit for a while then drain out the whey. Microwave it to get out more whey, then stretch it to cool and firm it up.


All in all, it turned out well. Cheese was good, a little firmer than I would have liked (probably less stretching next time) Also, this process is one time that smell-o-vision would not be a good thingÖ although it did bring back memories of when the boys were babies!

Looks great. I love mozarella cheese, especially when its deep fried and served with some homemade marinara sauce or when its part of lasagna or chicken or veal parm, or.......................any way you want to serve it, it's just plain good!

Glad to see your turned out good. My nephew and my father made some earlier this year and it didn't turn out so good. How much yield did you get from a gallon of milk?

a gallon of whole milk yielded about a pound of mozz. cheese.

Kloset--frying it up is part of the plan need to get it breaded and in the freezer; probably won't happen until tonight or tomorrow am
