Make fresh mozzarella cheese from curd
Sean Hartwig, store manager of Morgan & York in Ann Arbor, demonstrates how you can make your own fresh mozzarella cheese from curd. The three-part video below captures Sean's tips and techniques based on more than a dozen years working with cheeses. Morgan & York specializes in fine wines and specialty foods.
Part 1 - The history of mozzarella
Part 2: Prepping the curd
Part 3: Elongating the proteins
Morgan & York sells the curd you can use to make your own fresh mozzarella. If you would like to make your own curd (and other cheeses), there is no place better to visit than the New England Cheesemaking Supply Company. Cheese queen Ricki Carroll makes cheese-making easy. Ricki was even featured in Barbara Kinsolver's book Animal Vegetable Miracle, which talks about her efforts to become as self-sufficient as possible in producing the family's food. Ricki herself has a book on cheesemaking called Home Cheese Making: Recipes for 75 Delicious Cheeses.
