16. Drain
To drain, lift up the drainer by the handle. Put the mesh strainer on top of the heating pot, and the drainer inside of the mesh strainer
Time: 02:30:00
Tip: To assist with the draining process, tip the drainer from side to side every 10 minutes, releasing some more of the whey back into the heating pot.
17. Instructions
Pour the curd from the drainer into the strainer
18. Instructions
While the machine heats the whey for stretching in the next step, cut or separate the curd into 4 parts to form into large balls. For the next few steps, you will need to use heat resistant gloves.
19. Mix
Time: 00:20:00
Temperature: 75 °C
Speed: 50 RPM
20. Instructions
With gloves on, grab one part of the curd and, very gently, shape it into a ball, place it into a ladle, and lower into the hot whey (for about 10 seconds). Then scoop it up and begin to press the curd together, again, with light pressure. Put the curd back into the whey to reabsorb the heat, then press again.
21. Instructions
Put the curd balls back into the whey for another few seconds, then scoop back up for stretching. Pull and stretch the cheese, creating cohesion and elasticity, then fold back in on itself. Put the balls back into the warm whey again, then repeat this stretch step-fold-dip motion 2 more times.
22. Instructions
Now hold the warm mozzarella ball with both hands, shaping it into a globe shape by pulling the surface and folding it into the center of the bottom of the ball, pushing the curd down inside itself.
23. Instructions
Add cream inside the hole. Pinch and twist off the bottom opening to seal your ball for a shiny ball of mozzarella.
24. Instructions
Repeat for the others 3 parts. First cover the pot so the whey can warm again for a few minutes.
