1 ½ tsp citric acid, dissolved in 1 cup cold water
½ rennet tablet, dissolved in ¼ cup cold water
1-gallon whole milk
1 tsp sea salt
Pour the milk into a larger, heavy pot over medium-high heat, add the citric acid mixture and stir gently until it reached 90F. Remove the pot from the heat and slowly stir in the rennet mixture, using an up and down motion with your slotted spoon. Cover and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
Inspect the curd, it should resemble a custard if pressed with your finger. When it comes to this consistency, cut a crosshatch pattern into the curds using a long sharp knife. Cook the curds to 105F before draining the liquid whey. Once the curds are cooked and drained, heat them until they can be stretched.
Stretch the cheese and fold it back onto itself. If it tears, add more heat and fold in the salt. The more you fold, the more string like it will become. Tear off pieces and roll into balls, serve warm. Enjoy!
