Fresh Mozzarella: Recipe????? [Moved from General Chowhounding Topics]

  • 2

Does anyone have a sure fire fresh Mozzarella recipe? I've looked at the one from New England Cheese Company, but I wanted to check other ideas.

I figured if restaurants are making this daily, it must be doable for me.

Tips would be great as well.

  1. There's the 30 Minute Magic Mozzarella:

    It's one of the recipes in Barbara Kingsolver's book "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle."

    1. I got the kit from NE Cheese Company for my husband for Christmas; the first batch worked quite well; after that I had trouble with the curds not setting well. I tried a couple more times with different brands/types of milk, and even with her variation using powdered milk, but gave up; with the price of milk these days, it was painful to throw away the failures!
