What Our Customers Are Saying
Great for us beginners...first batch was WONDERFUL!
I'm a cream cheese-making fool now, thanks to this kit!
I purchased the Fresh Cheese Making Kit, and have made 3 batches of cheese: mascarpone, cottage cheese and ricotta. The first batch I followed the directions to the letter. Since I use raw Jersey cow milk and cream, I found the curds too firm with the calcium chloride, I left it out of the other batches, and had excellent results. I have already recommended this kit to some of my friends eager to make their own cheese at home.
See review from 2013 about fromage blanc...still has not been corrected in the booklet i received. Now I'm faced with possibly wasted gallon of my raw goat milk. So unhappy! Some other aspects are great, but besides this the rennet has issues too.
Response from CFH: The instructions included with this starter (http://www.culturesforhealth.com/media/docs/Fromage_Blanc_Instructions.pdf ) are up-to-date and accurate. No extra rennet is needed when using this starter. The recipe on our website (http://www.culturesforhealth.com/how-to-make-fromage-blanc-recipe ) has 2 options, one of which uses rennet and a mesophilic cheese starter. We are very sorry for any confusion.
my first time making cottage cheese and cream cheese. instructions were ok, got a little confused, but, I was able to work my way through and ended up with an edible product! It would be nice to have a list of items that one needs to have when you first start into cheese making so you have everything on hand (butter cloth, hard cheese molds, more explanation of which cultures are needed to make which types of cheeses, press, etc. )
