Curd Nerds rejoice! I have made a quick Mozzarella video tutorial.
It has been a while since I put a cheese-making video together, so as I was making mozzarella on last night for pizzas in the Cob oven tonight, I thought I should document it. It took just over 45 minutes to make due to filming every step, but it worked out well.
Update: Since its initial production I have improved this tutorial with a voiceover and updated recipe. Click through to the new Mozzarella video tutorial page.
thank you for your videos, recipes, and general awesomeness. I have a question about making this cheese. I have tried twice will ill effects. I think that I do need to add more rennet- like you found in your class- but when I get to the microwave steps I can drain the whey before microwaving but as soon as I do 1 minute the curd becomes too soft to drain, and basically becomes liquid when I do the 30 second ones. The first fail I used regular whole milk (161 F pasteurized) that we then flavored and put on pasta. Thing is when I reheated the pasta for lunch I have this neat stringy cheese on it almost like mozz. Both times I have gotten this soupy mess at the microwave stage. any thoughts? Thanks again.
Hi. I believe that you have diagnosed your issue. Add just a little more rennet or see if you can source some raw milk. The difference will astound you.
Very happy to have discovered this blog. I made my first batch of farmhouse cheddar recently. It's currently ageing I the fridge. Looks forward to following your adventures in cheese too!
Thank you, Gavin. This is the first of your videos that I have seen. This is not a hard process. I am now inspired! I loved the music, as well. Very fitting! =) ~Colleen~
Hi Colleen, yes it is very easy to make. Thanks for the feedback. The videos are fun to make!
Yep!, That was pretty CHEESEY music! :))

Thanks for another great and inspirational video, they are a joy to watch. And what´s more, they make me want to make cheese myself 🙂 Love the music as well, real feel-good music.
Cheers Siggi G. I left out the voice over on purpose this time to see if it made sense with just text labels. Thanks for the confirmation that it was okay.

Sure – tease with a tasting! LOL – thanks so much for the great vid. Love the "Little Green Cheese" moniker, too.
