Making cheese at home may seem like a task to leave to the experts. But with such a wide variety of cheese recipes available, it is quite simple to get started, and there are many reasons to make your own cheese at home.
During COVID many people took up hobbies such as sourdough making and gardening but what about cheese making!? Be the first of your friends to learn how to make your own cheese! Once you have done it a few times you will have the method and be able to do it again and again! Its like riding a bike. Begin with easy cheeses such as our Mozza & Ricotta, and our Feta Kit.
Commercial cheeses may contain artificial colors or additives. Making cheese at home allows you to choose your own ingredients and decide what works best for you. For example we use Vegetarian Rennetand hand pack all of our cheese kits with love! (All of our products are also gluten free) We'll help you learn to use these ingredients in your first cheesemaking project!
There are a few basic steps to cheesemaking, and once you get the method down you can create several different cheeses! All you need is some effort and time.
As you begin to make cheese, you will naturally seek out the best milk for your product. You will ask questions, talking to farmers and other cheese makers. While you can make cheese without ever meeting a cow, knowing your sources is so much more fun!
Unlike other hobbies you don't need a lot of fancy supplies to make cheese. A large pot, a basic thermometer, cheesecloth, and a few cheese cultures will get you started on the right path. All of our kits come with multiple batches so you can make your cheese over and over again!
It is a great activity to do inside with friends and family! Kids love to make cheese. Kids love to eat cheese. If you have children, cheesemaking is a great kitchen activity. They can participate and learn along the way. If you homeschool, cheesemaking is a unique way to teach science and chemistry.
No matter what kind of cheese you make, your homemade cheese will be edible. Some of the most fabulous, rare cheeses were discovered by accident. Even if you think you've messed up your cheese irreparably, drain, salt, and try it anyway. You may not ever be able to repeat it, but you can still enjoy eating it.
