For less than $2.50, you can make your own Mozza Cheese at home with your family, and it only takes around 30 minutes. Easy cheese to make!
If you’ve ever wanted to experiment with cheese-making but balked at the initial cost or prep work, then this thirty-minute mozzarella recipe is the perfect opportunity for you to delve into the world of delicious, delightful cheese.
There are a few things you’ll need to either buy from a specialty store or order online, but you can get them in small amounts that won’t break the bank. Citric acid powder and rennet (this recipe suggests using liquid vegetable rennet) are the two harder to find ingredients, but once you’ve located these items, the only other things you’ll need are milk and salt.
In order to make the mozzarella, you’ll need a stove, a pot, a microwave, a slotted spoon, a thermometer, and a bowl. You’ll heat the milk, add the citric acid and then the vegetable rennet. Once the milk begins to curdle, it goes into a bowl and spends some time in the microwave. Depending on how soft or stringy you want your cheese, you can add more seconds to the cook time.
After the cheese has been stretched and salted, you’ll be able to serve it warm, or cool it off and serve it cubed for later. If you want to amaze your friends and relatives at your next party, this might be worth a shot.
