15. Instructions
Place the drainer in the draining position: leaving the cutter in place, lift up the basket, insert the strainer into the heating pot, and then rest the drainer on top of the strainer.
16. Drain
Lift up drainer in order to drain. Set it at an angle on the rim of the heating pot for further draining. Align the notches on the bottom of the drainer with the rim of the heating pot. To facilitate draining, you may rotate the drainer from one side to the other.
Time: 00:45:00
Tip: To assist with the draining process, tip the drainer from side to side every 10 minutes, releasing some more of they whey back into heating pot.
17. Instructions
Pour the curd from the drainer into the strainer.
18. Drain
Lift up drainer in order to drain. Set it at an angle on the rim of the heating pot for further draining. Align the notches on the bottom of the drainer with the rim of the heating pot. To facilitate draining, you may rotate the drainer from one side to the other.
Time: 00:05:00
19. Instructions
Prepare a plate or cutting board to cut the curd on.
20. Instructions
Prepare heat resistant gloves.
21. Instructions
While the machine heats the whey for stretching in the next step: Remove the curd from the strainer and place on the cutting board, then cut or separate the curd into 4 parts, for large balls, or 8 parts for smaller balls. For the next few steps, you will need to use the heat resistant gloves.
22. Heat
Time: 00:20:00
Temperature: 75 °C
Speed: OFF
23. Instructions
With gloved hands, grab each part of the curd and, very gently, shape it into a ball. Replace back to the board.
24. Instructions
Starting with one ball, place it gently into a ladle, and lower into the hot whey(for about 10 seconds). Wait a few moments for the heat to absorb, then scoop it up and begin to press the curd together, again, very gently and with only light pressure. Return curd to the whey to reabsorb the heat, then press again.
25. Instructions
Return curd ball back to the whey for another few moments, then scoop back up for stretching. Pull and stretch the cheese, creating cohesion and elasticity, then fold back in on itself. Return the ball to the warmed whey again, then repeat this stretch-fold-dip motion 2 more times.
26. Instructions
Finally, grab it from one end and let it stretch from its own weight. Once it easily stretches and elongates, you know it is ready for shaping.
27. Instructions
Now hold the warm mozzarella ball with both hands, shaping it into a globe by pulling the surface and folding it into the center of the bottom of the ball, pushing the curd down inside itself. Pinch and twist off the bottom opening to seal your ball for a shiny globe of mozzarella.
28. Instructions
Repeat for the other 3 parts.
29. Instructions
Prepare a brine with the following 4 ingredients in a separate bowl: (2% saturation of salt)
30. +Ingredients
