[Erica] Hi, I'm Erica.
00:05
And I'm Stephen.
00:06
We're co-founders of FarmSteady and Brooklyn Brew Shop.
00:08
[Erica] And today we're going to be making
00:09
homemade burrata to top the most delicious flatbread ever
00:13
that has prosciutto, a pear compote and rosemary.
00:16
Perfect for fall.
00:17
We're gonna start with the flatbread
00:18
so that can just be rising
00:20
while we make everything else.
00:22
You'll know the dough's done
00:23
when it forms into a pretty elastic ball.
00:25
And you're just gonna toss it in a bowl,
00:27
put some plastic wrap or a towel over it.
00:30
What's next?
00:31
Cheese.
00:32
Let's make some cheese. All right.
00:34
We're gonna bring this milk up to 90 degrees.
00:36
So, right now we're gonna add some citric acid.
00:39
So, to coagulate the milk,
00:40
we're gonna add some vegetable rennet.
00:41
After you've added the rennet,
00:43
just remove your milk from heat
00:45
and let it sit for 10 minutes.
00:47
Our milk has formed into one solid curd.
00:49
The reason why you cut the curds
00:51
is to increase the surface area.
00:53
That causes more of the whey to be released by the curds.
00:57
So, right now we're just gonna spoon the curds
00:59
into a cheese basket lined with cheese cloth.

01:09
[Erica] When you need it, you can see the whey comes out
01:12
but it also makes the mozzarella stretchy.
01:17
[Stephen] Put a little bit of ricotta right in the middle.
01:22
[Erica] For the quick pickled pear compote,
01:24
we're going to take some fresh pears,
01:25
apple cider vinegar, some brown sugar
01:27
and a little bit of cinnamon.
01:30
Once it's rolled out, transfer it to a cookie sheet
01:33
lined with a baking mat.
01:34
(upbeat music)
01:43
So I think the pizza's ready.
01:45
And, here it is.
01:48
[Erica] I'm gonna cut this
01:48
so if you want to pore us some drinks.
01:51
Cheers.
01:53
[Erica] That's all you get.
01:54
The rest is mine.
01:56
It's something you can totally do at home
01:58
and you not only made a flat bread,
01:59
you made the cheese and topped it.
