I invite you all to visit my wife Debbie's wsebsite at http://www.cookfromtheheart.com
and just click onto "video lessons" on the left side. then click onto the picture of the mozzarella where you will be aboe t view about 6 videos of her making mozzarella from start (using milk curd bought at a good italian deli) to finish. thanks

we tried this as an experiment using just my digital camera. we hope to get a video camera with a tripod to make it look better for her next lesson which will be how to make christmas bow tie cookies.

Nice videos and Deb's homemade mozzarella looks wonderful! And the roll with prosciutto is something I definitely want to make.

Now where can I find cow's milk curd? I don't recall seeing it in the dairy case here in Central Texas, but perhaps I have just overlooked it. Yes, we do have cows in our pasture, but none of them have ever been milked by human hands. I don't even want to think about that! Rolling on the floor laughing

I believe cottage cheese is curds from cow's milk, but what Deb starts with in the video is not cottage cheese, at least not in any form I have ever seen cottage cheese.

we get our milk curd from a place called ridgewood famrs. it is not a farm like in a normal sense meaning there are no cows or anything like that. in fact, there is no grassland at all. it;s just a place that sells frezh and frozen meat plus chicken and turkeys etc. they also sell milk curd in 40 pound containers.

naturally you don't want that so i suggest you visit a real good italian deli and ask if they can get it for you.

i think that after we make the mozzarella from the milk curd what is left at the bottom of the pot (the whey) can be used to make ricotta.

I think I am back to looking in the pasture. I have milked a cow before, but not one that had never been milked before. Hmmm....wonder which one I should try first?

Rolling on the floor laughing We do have a few young cows that are still around 1000 lb, but I'll look for milk curd when I am in Austin at Whole Foods or Central Market.

If I don't find the curd there, I'll just wait until we are in PA next summer visiting our brand new granddaughter and her parents again. If her parents don't bring her to Texas before then, we'll be up North sooner than that!
