My sister, D, gave her daughter a cheese making kit a few years ago and they have been making Mozzarella Cheese from scratch since. I finally bought a kit and am going to give it a go. I am really excited and hope you are, too!
First step is to find "Pasteurized Milk" since I can't use Ultra-Pasteurized Milk." I found the grocery about a mile from my house sells pasteurized whole milk, so I bought it yesterday.
Yeah! This morning I made the cheese. First I had to watch a video a number of times because there are critical steps of stirring, timing, and temperature to be mindful of. The kit I have is from Ricki Carroll, about $25 online. It will turn 40 gallons of milk into cheese. Each gallon makes about 16-20 ounces of finished cheese, though that is a rough estimate without weighing it. If you venture into this, you will find that you work with One Gallon of Whole Milk at a time.
