Homemade mozzerella

After reading Gourmet this month, I have decided to make my own mozzerella cheese. Does anyone know where I can purchase rennet tablets?

  1. Hi mammab, take a look at this thread:

    Good luck!

    1. You can also find liquid rennet at La Baie des fromages ont Jean-Talon close to Papineau. It goes for a little less than $15.

        Thanks guys! I'll let you know the outcome....I hope it's as easy as it looks:)

          I hope for you too. Tried 2-3 times and it all went to waste. With the quart of milk at close to $3, I wasted some dough on trying to make something that is easily found in stores now. Mozzarina does it for me although mozzarella di buffala is much better.

      2. Thinking of trying to make my own mozzarella as well. I might have a source that could get me raw milk, but would like to do a test batch before possible ruining great creamy raw milk. What pasteurized milk would yield the best results? I usually buy the whole organic milk from Laiterie Lamothe, but is this flash pasteurized? Also I found mixed information about homogenized milk. Anyone has any tips?

          If I remember well, Liberté makes some organic milk with around 4% fat content. However, it's pretty expensive...

          Let us know what you try, I'm also interested in the results.
