The Soft Cheese Kit is the perfect introduction to cheese making at home. Highly recommended for the absolute beginner to cheese making, because this kit contains everything you need to get started. In relation to the milk, you will be using tiny amounts of starter and rennet. Therefore making it possible for numerous batches of fresh and soft cheese. Fresh cheese may be eaten on the same day or kept in the bottom of your fridge where it will develop more flavour with each, passing day.
Being adventurous in cheese making is a good trait to have. Remember, its not an exact science. Add a pot of Penicillium Candidum to your basket, to make a Camembert or Brie type cheese. Or Penicillium Roqueforti for a delicious soft, creamy blue cheese.
If you decide to make a white or blue mould, ripened cheese, remember to store them separately to avoid cross contamination.
To Eat The Rind, Or Not To Eat The Rind. That Is The Question. It really adds a different flavour and texture contrast to the cheese. So recommend giving it ago!
If you are lucky enough to have fresh herbs growing in a window box or garden, finely chop and add to the curds. Delicious with a baked potato. A soft cheese making kit makes a great present at Christmas or at any other time of year.
Potential yield 3-4kgs soft cheese
