We lit the wood, fired up the Kettle and got ready to burn some five day sourdough. My Buddy Wayne came over and showed me how to make homemade Motz, I could not believe how easy and good it was. We will be doing it a lot from now on. The pie turned out good, taste was fine, but I fought the heat temps. I had wet wood from last nights big storm and that slowed my temps a bit. But we got a few good pies, and two sourdough baguettes. One of the pies I did was a Muffaletta pie, and that was my fav! First time for that one. All in all good night.

Started with a gallon of milk. Actually had to go back and not get ultra pasteurized.
First time for me. My buddy Wayne had done it many times and sort of showed me the ropes.
I was surprised how good it turned out. Truly the best I ever had. Really good stuff.

What kind of milk did you use.  It seems everyone ultra pasteurizes their milk.  I used to use Food Lion brand but have found nothing now will form up.
Thanks!
Peter

I was warned not to use Ultra Pasteurized. I usually buy organic, but all of that is UP. Most of the milk was. I found a gallon of PET (yes like the ice cream) that was pasteurized but not UP. So I got that, whole mile, and it worked absolutely perfect. I think the food lion brand was not UP either.  The cheaper whole milk brands should be the pasteurized versions. I will buy pet again this weekend. ALso using some lipase in the recipe. Will post pics and recipe in the galley tomorrow. Good luck!

Hey I just finished about a half hour ago making the same recipe, but infusing it with our fresh basil from our garden. Really good stuff! We will bake on Saturday and I wanted to try this first, then see how she goes for the weekend. But very tasty and turned out great. I used Pet milk again. No problems.
