What is the key to keeping fresh Mozzarella soft.

It often turns "sticky" in refrigerator storage

Is this about storing or making the cheese? If the former, recommend you update the title; if the latter, this might be a recipe request (or it could come under "basics", like the question on tomato paste.) – Neil Fein Jan 28 '11 at 21:48
Thanks, I've updated the question – Noah Jan 28 '11 at 22:40
fresh mozz always comes stored in water when you buy it in a punnet. have you tried that? – Chicken Pie Jan 28 '11 at 22:56

I believe that fresh mozzarella should be stored in the whey to keep it moist.

I'll try that next time, and if it works I'll accept your answer – Noah Feb 4 '11 at 1:09
