We’re making mozzarella today- are ya ready? I’m assuming you’ve read Part One where we discuss all the preliminary stuff, (like ingredients and equipment), so let’s dive in!

*A Note to All Aspiring Cheesemakers* I want to give fair warning before we start. Cheesemaking is fun, but it is also finicky sometimes. So, you can’t get discouraged if this is your first batch and it doesn’t turn out… It’s a learning process! The first few times you attempt to make cheese, you’ll probably be sweating and reading the recipe a million times before starting. But trust me- the more you do it, the easier it becomes, and soon you’ll be making mozzarella in your sleep. Practice truly does make perfect!
