This seems like a small mom and pop or mom and son operation and they are very responsive when you have any problems or questions.
I will do business with them again.
For my first attempt at making cheese, this is most definitely a success and I like how the kit includes everything. I'll probably perfect my techniques as I keep making it, and I also want to try other recipes. The recipes included in the included guide were for the super fast mozzarella, European cream cheese, goat cheese, queso blanco, mascarpone, whole milk ricotta, & butter. To make my mozzarella I used 1/2 gallon of raw milk & 1/2 gallon of organic pasteurized. Now that I read over the recipes, I'd say the mozzarella is probably the most "complicated" one. But there all pretty easy.
You mix the gallon of milk with 2 tsp citric acid. Heat it up to 88 F and add the diluted calcium chloride and diluted liquid rennet. Dilution ratio is 1 tsp of calcium chloride in 1/4 cup of water & 1/8 tsp of liquid rennet in 1/4 cup of water. I used a thermometer that had a wire with a metal prong at the end (like a meat thermometer) - but I just lowered it in the milk in the pot. You heat it to about 104 F and it all starts getting thick like porridge. They give you a cheese cloth in the kit and you can line a metal or plastic strainer with it. Once it gets thick like that on the stovetop, you just pour it all in the strainer.
I then added a tsp of sea salt on top (I forgot they give you cheese salt that's non-iodized). Put in the microwave and heat 60 seconds. It gets stretchy. You can take it out and drain more whey and stretch it. Add another tsp of salt on top. Put it back in microwave for 60 seconds. Then you stretch it again. The directions say you can then form into little blobs and put in ice water. I skipped that step and just left it in one piece and put it in the fridge. I tasted it and it was good but thought it needed one more tsp of salt, so I added, and now it's perfect!
I've told several friends I'm doing this and they kind of look at me like, "Huh?" and then say, "You can make cheese at home??" I think it's funny. No one seems to know cheese can be made at home. I didn't know either until I saw this listing. It's pretty cool and I plan to start doing it every week. I think this is a nice kit and it gives you enough to make about 20 batches. Would recommend.
o The results were not like the commercially-made mozzarella
I never attempted making any cheese before even if I am pretty eager to cook and try new recipes etc...
Cheese was always something "you buy in the store". Wrong! I can make it! You can make it!
I got this kit for dummies and followed the instructions to the T. I also watched a mozzarella youtube where this guy was kneading it like bread and I did that too. In almost no time at all I had my first ever balls of super duper fresh mozzarella ready to eat!
I put them in cold salty water and in the fridge for about an hour and they were as good (or better) as the ones we buy.
The instructions are very clear, the products worked perfectly. I used regular whole milk from the local food store. Pasteurized milk.
I found out that all organic milk they sell is ultra pasteurized and that one won't work.
Now my head is spinning and I can't wait to go back to the store to buy gallons and gallons of milk to try other recipes! LOL
My house will turn into a little cheese factory for a while..... at least until I tried making all the kinds I want to make. This kit comes with just a few recipes that gave me the right push and some confidence. Now I will google away in search of more recipes to venture into home cheese making.
This kit would be an awesome gift for somebody who likes cooking and doing things from scratch like me. It comes in a brown box that contains everything you need but the thermometer. I had one so i didn't need it. I like the natural, organic, recycled look of the packaging. It came shipped in a Christmas envelope so I felt like I was getting a gift and in a way I really did. The greatest gift for me is to learn to do something new and today I did :-)
I think it's a good value because to order all the components separately you might spend a lot more, and then if you gave up you would have a lot of wasted product. With this kit, you can try it out before you invest in a lot of stuff
