Making your own mozzarella at home is the perfect weekend project for fall. In less than one afternoon, you can have fresh mozzarella to pile high on top of layers of crisp basil, tomatoes and flaky, warm baguettes slices.
Central Market Cooking School’s Mary Martini says she likes to use pre-made curds when making her own mozzarella. It makes the process a lot easier and cuts the mozzarella making time in half. Pre-made curds can be hard to find in grocery stores, so they’re best if ordered online or from specialty stores. Curds are half the battle when it comes to making mozzarella. So, if you want to cut corners, this is the perfect way to save a little time and no one will ever taste the difference!
