Thanks!  I wasn't planning on it, it takes quite a bit longer and requires more steps, ingredients and equipment.  Then it has to age.  Mozzarella is the perfect cheese to start with.  If you love making it, you can purchase a recipe book or two and expand your horizons into all kinds of awesome.  Smiley

Missingwillow I feel like you are the craftster version of the food network! I can watch you cook all day  Cheesy I tend to have more accidents than successes in the kitchen but I might have to give this a try!

Ha!  Thanks SheepBlue, I actually manage an annual event where I get to hang with a bunch of Top Chef and Iron Chef America contestants.  When I watch them cook, I pay attention. Cheesy 

Yoopidou, good luck with your search for rennet.

You guys need to try this, it's a very satisfying project.

thanks for the great tutorial, I have made ricotta, but now will need to try mozza (as soon as I find somewhere to buy vegetable rennet)

thanks so much for the tip alteredmommy, I had seen it for order from the US but was worried about getting it through customs.  I will have to order some.

Bookmarked.  I work walking distance from a Whole Foods.  Maybe I will head up there for lunch some day this week.

This would be another great one to try with my daughter.  She already has the strangest Mom in the class, but now the other kids are starting to see my projects as "cool" and "awesome" rather than just "weird".
