Its Cheese!

I finally found time today to make mozzarella cheese............This has been on my "to do" list for weeks now. What a fun, learning process this was. It really doesn't take more than an hour to make this wonderful cheese and that includes the clean up. Each step of the process goes very quickly and it was difficult to work and photograph at the same time. Next time I'll have someone else take pictures.
Wearing rubber gloves to knead the cheese is a must. It gets incredibly hot! When it's finished, you drop it into a bowl of ice water to stop the process and cool it off. Once cool, it's ready to eat. One gallon of whole milk made one good size ball of cheese, that weighed approximately 3/4 of a lb. I have plenty of extra milk right now so will be making lots of this cheese as you can freeze it and it's just as good when it thaws.

Tomorrow nights dinner - home made Sloppy Joes with fresh grated mozzarella cheese :)

Well, I am impressed. I have seen the mozzerella process on tv but missed the reason for the ice water. I am guessing you need fresh whole milk and not the pasturized stuff. Does it need to be goat milk? The only cheese I have made is the stuff that develops when I leave my half-eaten bowl of cheerios under a bed too long.

Yes, give us the details.

I always wanted to make it too but haven't. SloppyJoes and fresh mozzerella sounds great.

Mozzerella - hmm, good name for a cow or goat?

I am impressed, too. That is really cool. I'm not much for cheese, mozzerella is a favorite. Good work!

Yummy!!! I made some cow's milk mozzerella (and ricotta) last year and have sheeps' milk mozzerella on "the list". What kind of milk did you use?
Sloppy joes, too. Can I come for supper?

I've made mozzarella a few times. It's fun but the rubber gloves are a must! I can't wait to have enough goat's milk to try it again.

Your cheese looks great! That is on my to learn/do list.
Sloppy Joes with cheese, yum!

That look delicious. I am impressed. Because it gets so hot I wonder if you could use a dough hook with a Kitchen Aid mixer. I don't know anything about cheese making but just a thought.
