making cheese part 2

OK, so I wasn't planning on a making cheese part 2, but I was having such a good time making it, I just had to! I made 2 pounds of mozzarella late this afternoon. I made it once before, but it was more like a hard, tasteless lump of rubber. Lets put it this way, it didn't even melt on the pizza I fed my family. My poor family! Ha!
Well this time I had a different recipe and it came out much better. It was like fresh mozzarella. Maybe not like the pros, but it at least melted on the pizza! Told you I've had some whoopers in the kitchen! With that said here are the pictures!

this is when it's just starting to cuddle

now it's starting to become cheese lumps

cheese curds and whey all separate and ready to drain

here is the mozzarella drained and ready to be warmed up to stretch 

warmed up and was working real well and starting to stretch 

TA-DA!! stretchy and ready for...

mmmmm pizza!!
I was so excited about this because it was homemade dough, sauce, and  cheese! This fall we'll have our own homegrown bacon to put on a pizza, and tomatoes! I love tomatoes on my pizza.
