Funny, I just bought a book on cheesemaking today as I still want to make
that mozzarella. But the book talks about definitely not using the rennet
available in the grocery stores. There are a few choices as well:
animal vs vegetable and liquid form vs tablets. Take your pick. The liquid is
more perishable. They give the following sources:
