Mozzarella success!
« on: September 28, 2009, 10:05:50 AM »
Just wanted to thank MrsKK for the mozzarella recipe that produced this nice ball of mozzarella. Microwave mozz didn't work for me and I thought I must go and buy myself a pH-meter in order to get some mozzarella done.

Now I am all excited about making more mozzarella balls. Tomato and basil, here we come :)

Try adding some lipase (not sure if you already do) and age to make a provolone.  yummy

Excellent looking cheese by the way.

Tea, I read through your provolone posts and they indeed inspired me to give a try. That is probably when I get frustrated with camemberts again :)

Just had the rest of that mozzarella. It was good, but it had become much harder during the night in the whey. Yesterday it was almost too soft, today it was really intense, almost difficult to cut. (So not actually hard, just intense, if that makes sense.)

Great job on the cheese.  Now that I'm almost done with canning and preserving the harvest, I'm getting the itch to make cheese again.
