Fresh cheese, made from raw cow’s milk is about one of my all time favorite foods. I like to take the curds from a cheddar cheese recipe, stir in a couple of tablespoons of crushed red pepper and once aged a bit – it makes the BEST cheese crisps you’ve ever eaten!!!
Homesteader’s Supply has put together a few products that will enable you to make your favorite variety of cheese. When added together, it’s over a $30.00 value of savings! In addition to the amazing book of cheese recipes – you can see the recipes for Cheddar, Colby and cultured butter on our website!
Here is a cheese making kit for the serious beginner, or the experienced cheese maker. It includes all the cheese making products you will need to make a superb cheese from the soft like Cream cheese, Sour cream, Quark, Cottage cheese, Fromage blanc, Chevre frais, St-Maure, Valencay, and even Cultured butter, to semi-soft like Brick, Jack, Farmers, Limburger, Camembert, Brie, Blue cheese, Gouda, Edam, Havarti , to the hard cheeses like Mozarella, Parmesan, Romano,Provolone, Emmenthaler, Gruyere, and Swiss.
We have even included the wax for aging your cheese. Most important because cheese making really is a science as well as a culinary art is the best book. At Homesteader’s Supply we have used many of the books, but this one is great by far for an all around how-to, and why, and trouble-shooting.
