    Very impressive Caroline, looks great too. We recently went on a cheese making course in Knockdrinna and used raw milk. It was great. Hard to get large quantities of raw milk these days 🙁 Must try your Mozzarella recipe. Thanks for sharing.

    What cheeses did you make? I think Helen would be a great teacher.

    I’d love to try this recipe with raw milk. I just might have to pay a social visit to one of the nearby uncles at milking time…

    Oh this sounds so easy and fun I’m totally going to give it a go! Will have to pass the recipe onto my sister whose on a dairy farm in NZ, an endless supply of lovely fresh cows milk! Just hope I can hunt down some rennet here in Canberra.

      It really is amazingly easy – just wait until you are shaping your own mozzarella balls! If you can’t get your hands on rennet locally, try online or talk to cheesemakers at your local farmers’ market.
