Mozzarella Cheese in 8 Minutes
2 Litres full cream milk
1 teaspoon citrus acid
2 teaspoons renco
In a deep and microwave-proof dish place the milk and 1 teaspoon citrus acid. Stir well.
Place in the microwave for 6 minutes on high.
Remove from microwave and stir through the renco.
Place back in microwave for a further 1 minute.
Remove once again and drain excess liquid.
Place back in for a further 45 seconds then drain excess liquid off in a colander.
You can then put into a cheese basket to allow it to set. The cheese will seem bland, so you will need to make a Rock Salt broth.
Place one cup of Rock Salt in a large pot of of water and simmer
for an hour until all the salt has dissolved.
Cool then place your cheese in this broth for 20 minutes. This will help to flavour the cheese.
You may need a mould to help you to create the right shape for
Once you have drained the excess liquid, place boiling water over the top and with a wooden spoon gently press juice out of the cheese.
Remove and place in a cheese mould.
