This is so yummy and easy to make! You can be eating fresh mozzarella within an hour of starting the recipe! Why pay $10.00 a pound for fresh mozzarella when you can make it lickety split! Best if eaten the same day or within 24 hours of making. Pour the whey back into the milk jug and use it to cook your oatmeal, make bread and muffins with, add into soups! DON'T use organic or ultra-pasteurized milk OR chlorinated water as it will not turn into mozzarella! You can find citric acid and rennet tablets in your health food store. Have fun! NOTE: cook time is total time from when you add the milk until you are finished. WAIT! don't throw the whey away - make Ricotta Cheese As a By-Product of Mozzarella in just a few minutes!
