Fun and easy!

Really fun to make your own cheese. When you read the directions, they indicate you need patience and flexibility. My mozzarella has yet to form to the consistency to be stretched and braided, more like firm ricotta, but it is delicious. I added herbs to the cheese, then formed it into small balls, covered them with olive oil, and let them sit. There were gobbled up quickly. I think I need to find a better source of milk. Nothing is labelled as being high temp pasteurized. I will go to a farm this summer and get some fresh.More > < Less

About Urban Cheesecraft

Cheese Making 101

When Claudia Lucero set out to try her hand at cheesemaking, she was surprised at how difficult it was to find supplies and overwhelmed by some of the special equipment that some recipes required. After all, cheesemaking has been going on for centuries. Should it really be this complicated to try in a modern home? None of us has calibrated presses, humidity gauges, and acidity testers in our home kitchens.

After lots of research and perseverance, Claudia refined her own techniques for making fresh cheeses that don’t require aging and can be made at home with little or no special equipment. Now she’s sharing her experience with fellow aspiring cheesemakers.

With an Urban Cheesecraft DIY Cheese Kit, all you need is a gallon of pasteurized milk (not ultra-pasteurized). The kits include the rest of the supplies such as cheesecloth, a dairy thermometer, vegetarian rennet, citric acid, and cheese salt. (Supplies vary depending on the kit you choose.) Just follow the instructions, and in about an hour, you’ll have fresh mozzarella, ricotta, queso blanco, paneer, or goat cheese. Once you get the hang of it, you can have fun experimenting with different spices, shapes, and recipes. Your taste buds will love the effort.
