|Mozzarella cheese made with gt Kombucha, nonfat powder milk,|
your favorite oil, and a microwave. All done in less than
Mozzarella cheese is so easy to make and all it takes is a few ingredients that most kitchens might have on hand. NO RENNET TABLETS OR THERMOMETER NEEDED HERE! I prefer this nonfat powdered milk recipe because I get to control what goes in my body and I want to continue to remain diabetic free. With this recipe, I get to add the oil I choose to use. If I am going for Italian flavor, I would use extra virgin olive oil. If I am looking for a sandwich cheese flavor, I would add butter as my oil. If I want cheese and crackers I think I would go with grapeseed oil. You can use any oil. Peanut oil of course will give it a nutty flavor.They will all work fine. Ready? Its so easy. Here it goes...
- Warm water 3 cups
- Nonfat powder milk 2 1/3 cups
- Oil 1/2 cup of your favorite oil.
- Apple cider vinegar or lemon juice, 1 cup (I used my gt kombucha with a ph of 2.5 and worked fine) Note any kind will work.
- Sea Salt 1 teaspoon
- Pot, stainless steel or glass greased well on the bottom and sides.
- Bowl, microwave safe
- Ice, two cups in two cups water for the cold set.
- microwave oven
Mix warm water, oil with nonfat powder milk in blender.
Heat greased pot till it begins to smoke.
Add milk and stir the bottom to avoid burning on the bottom.
Add vinegar and stir to mix and let sit for 10 minutes.
|The curds are floating|
on top and have
separated most of
curds and whey.
|Strain whey from the curds|
|Oops don't do this. I was|
|Transfer curds to a|
microwavable bowl. Rinse
with warm water, being careful
not to lose the curds and they
will appear to liquify.
|Once it is done and shiny like this one,|
put in a bowl of ice water to set. It's done.
Dry and store unused cheese in the
refrigerator, and enjoy
|It's still warm in the center but looks good|
enough to eat.
|As you can see it melts very well. I topped my pita bread|
with my melted mozzarella and my homemade
Chunky Tomato & Jalapeno Preserves. Yum.
