Step 1:

Picture of

Combine 1 cup water with 1 1/2 teaspoon citric acid. Combine 1/4 cup unchlorinated water with 1/4 teaspoon rennet.

Step 2:

Picture of

Stir the citric acid mixture in 3.5 liters of whole milk. Mix well. Heat over medium-high heat until the temperature reaches 90°F (32°C).

Step 3:

Picture of

Remove from the heat. Add the rennet mixture. Stir well for 30 seconds. Cover and allow to set for 10 minutes.

Step 4:

Picture of

Make vertical and horizontal cuts with a knife. Cook the curds over medium heat until the temperature reaches 105°F (41°C). Stir slowly for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside for 10 minutes

Step 5:

Picture of

Separate the curds from the whey. Press the curds gently, pouring off as much whey as possible.

Step 6:

Picture of

Heat the pot containing the remaining whey until the temperature reaches 185°F (85°C). Turn off the heat. Let the curds sit in the whey for 3 minutes.

Step 7:

Fold and stretch between each dip and repeat until smooth and elastic. If the curds don't stretch, they are too cool and need to be reheated. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon salt over the cheese and keep folding and stretching until smooth and shiny.

Shape the mozzarella into a big ball or many small balls (Bocconcini). Place it in a bowl of ice water for 5 minutes to help hold its shape.

Cut and enjoy. Fresh mozzarella is best when eaten the same day at room temperature.
