Several readers have inquired about how to make the 30-minute Mozzarella Cheese Recipe from Ricki Carroll's great book, Home Cheese Making, without using a microwave. Here's how.

Follow the recipe for 30-minute Mozzarella until Step 5.

* When you get to Step 5, reserve the whey. Then put on heavy rubber gloves.

* Heat the reserved whey to at least 175 degrees Fahrenheit.

* Add 1/4 cup of cheese salt to the whey.



* Shape the curd into one or more balls, put them in a ladle or strainer, and dip them into the hot whey for several seconds.

The link from "How to make Mozzarella..." to "How to make [it] without a microwave..." is broken. I did find my way, the link ends with "...Microwave.htmlURL" When I removed the last 3 letters the link worked. I was wondering if I can use store-bought milk to make cheese or should I get it from local cows? Where can I buy raw milk? The dairy farmers around here say that they cannot sell raw milk to regular people for a variety of reasons.
