30 Minute Mozzarella Making Instructions

First we add Citric Acid
to cold milk

then heat slowly to 88-90F
then add rennet, stir for 30 sec ... turn heat to 'Lo' then let set quietlyin 3-5 min a firm curd forms, note clear whey separating from the curd
now use a knife to cut
1 inch squares in curd surface to the bottom
note the greenish yellow whey forming in the cut and how clear it is
transfer the curd to a colander or bowl using a slotted spoon
notice how the curd is beginning to get firmer as the whey drains
continue separating the curd and notice the color of the whey
drain the whey from the curd while gently pressing to aid whey runoff
using a heat proof bowl microwave on 'Hi' for 1 min.. notice the whey.. pour it off
knead and reheat for 30 sec, repeat if needed until the curd is almost too hot to handle (135F)
and now the fun begins..
knead the curd as you would bread dough
remove the curd from the bowl and continue kneading .. return it to the microwave if needed
at this point, if hot enough, it will begin to stretch ...
... and stretch ...
... and stretch some more
this is what makes it Mozzarella
ain't we having fun now... ....Ooops !
now knead it back into a big ball until it is smooth and shiny like this
Now Taste!
