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 from the strainer into 4 parts for large balls. For the next few steps, you will need to use the heat resistant gloves.
19. Mix
Time: 00:20:00
Temperature: 80 °C
Speed: 50 RPM
20. Instructions
With gloves on, grab one piece, shape into a 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. Return the curd to the whey to reabsorb the heat, then press again.
21. Instructions
Return curd ball back to 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. Return the ball to the warmed whey again, then repeat this stretch-fold-dip motion 2 more times.
22. Instructions
Now hold the warm mozzarella balls with both hands. Forming it into a globe shape, pull the surface and fold it into the center of the bottom of the ball, while pushing the curd down inside itself. Pinch and twist off the bottom opening to seal your ball for a shiny globe of mozzarella.
23. Instructions
Repeat for the other 3 parts. First cover the pot so the whey can warm again for a few minutes.
