When you use a recipe that calls for mozzarella, you sometimes get stuck with a bunch of leftover bits that may not seem too useful. A quick bath in boiling water, however, can help bring all those bits back into a single ball of mozzarella again.

If you have a bunch of leftover mozzarella shreds after making that pizza, chef Pasquale Cozzolino recommends saving those shreds of cheese for later use. Collect your leftover mozzarella bits, place them in a bowl and add a little heavy cream, salt, then some boiling water. Once the mozzarella starts to congeal, you can start shaping it all together in a ball. Now you can slice it or shred it all as if it was new. Check out the step-by-step guide at the link below.
