Can I Make Mozzarella with Junket Rennet?

Good Questions

Q: I was inspired by your Homemade Mozzarella so I bought 2 gallons of fresh local milk. Unfortunately, I assumed I could find rennet at my local health food store, but I can only find Junket. Should I try 1 or 2 Junket tabs? Or freeze the milk until I can get better rennet?

Editor: Junket rennet is less concentrated and less reliable than regular rennet, but I've been hearing success stories from people who use 1 - 2 tabs.

Readers, what do you think?
