My husband has been wanting to try making homemade cheese for a while,
so when I read about these great DIY Cheese Kits, I knew I had to get him one.
has a wonderful etsy shop
with all the necessities to make cheese at home.
Everything you need except the milk comes packaged in a cute little box!
Add some fresh goats milk...
Follow the easy directions, adding a little of this and that...
And not too long after...we had goat cheese!
It was tangy and unbelievably fresh tasting.
We spread it on a baguette,
drizzled a little olive oil over top, cracked some fresh pepper,
and we had a wonderful little appetizer with a glass of wine.
We were very pleased with our first attempt.
While we got a rather small yield,
(professional cheese makers we are not just yet)
the kit comes with enough supplies to make about 10 batches,
so we get to practice a few more times,
giving us plenty of time to perfect the techniques.
It was a fun project together in the kitchen,
and always rewarding to sit down & enjoy something that you've prepared yourself.
was very friendly and helpful,
and super prompt at answering my questions.
She also has kits for many other kinds of cheeses, so make sure and pop by her
etsy shop to check it out!
What's your favorite kind of cheese?
