Made my first fresh Mozzarella


Heated the milk to 85* and added the citric acid.


Continued heating to 100* added the rennet


Here I missed a step and I shut the burner off. Let it rest for 10min. then removed the curds


Strained into a colander


Finished pick wife didn't want to take any more pics. so no shots of needing the cheese.


It is good


Thanks for looking

One thing I need to add is,  When you are near the end kneading and stretching add your salt, It does need some salt.
