Preparation

The lightning-fast prep work for your homemade mozzarella:

Bring the milk to a boil with a teaspoon of salt added in. Then take the pot off the heat and stir in the vinegar essence. You'll see that the milk begins to clot immediately.

Next, lay out a container with a cloth and pour in the curdled milk. When you have poured everything in, you press the cloth together and form a ball. Be careful while doing this, as the liquid can still be very hot. Make sure you don't burn yourself.

Now let the compressed ball of mozzarella cool down.

Keep the finished mozzarella within the liquid, which is the whey, in a closed container in the refrigerator.
