Remastered from my original Mozzarella cheese video. I have updated the recipe as I found that there was not enough rennet to compensate for the addition of the lipase, and I took on feedback and recorded a voiceover track that fully explains the process of making quick mozzarella.
This delicious cheese is quick and easy to make at home. We use a microwave oven to speed up the process, helping us to make about 500 gm of cheese in around 30 minutes.
If you don’t have a microwave, you may want to put on heavy rubber gloves. Heat the reserved whey to at least 80°C (175°F). Add ¼ cup of salt to the whey. Shape the curd into one or more balls, put them in a ladle or strainer, and dip them into the hot whey for several seconds. Knead the curd with spoons between each dip and repeat this process several times until the curd is smooth and pliable. There is no need to add additional salt. Finish off with the ice bath for 15 minutes.
