They start us out with Mozzarella. Here I have set out the five things needed to mix in the milk to make the mozzarella. Incidentally, in the background is some sauerkraut I made.
After draining the whey, which will be used to make ricotta, I am to microwave the curds and knead them with a spoon.
After microwaving and kneading a somewhat miraculous transformation happens and I am suddenly holding mozzarella cheese.
