    My wife taste has change and she doesn't like salt taste, can you taste 1 teaspoon or should I go with 1/2?

    You don't need to put any salt in it if you don't want to. We like the salt flavor, and yes you can taste 1 tsp. Try it without any salt while your kneading it. If you like the flavor don't put any in, or add a little & see how you like it.

    Some pharmacies carry the rennet tablets, also health food stores carry the citric acid & rennet too.

    Thanks for all the nice comments guys!

    This is so darn easy, you all need to try it.

    The best part is the mozz is much better than store bought, way cheaper, and has a wonderful texture to it.

    Mine ended up like a really rich ricotta, which is fine. I'll get the right stuff and try it again. Yours looks really good. thanks for posting this!

    The first batch I did, the same thing happened. I just made calzone with it.

    I was thinking lasagna. Not sure how it'll melt, but I think it will be delicious either way.

    That's a good idea, it melts great.

    My wife loves fresh mozz.  I bought a kit about a month ago from cheesemaking.com.  The lady who runs the site is known as "The Cheese Queen", I think.   We've had good success with her kit.  Basically exact same thing as what the OP posted here...  I think it was like 29.99 for enough everything (except milk) to make 30 gallons of milk worth of mozz.  We're making some tomorrow.  And yes, you can smoke it...

    Later,
