Look what I brought home from work with me today! It’s a Mozzarella Cheesemaking Kit made by a company called Roaring Brook Dairy. You can make authentic mozzarella cheese at home in under an hour! All the ingredients that you need, except for the milk, are provided in the kit. It comes with a dairy thermometer, cheese salt, rennet, citric acid and gloves. And as far as the milk goes, you can use whole or 2% milk. The fresher the better and pasteurized is fine but it cannot be Ultra-Pasteurized. That’s it!
You can find a kit at Harris Teeter Supermarkets if you live in the South East part of the country and right now they are on sale for $9.99. After the sale they will cost you $15.99. Or you can go Roaring Brook Dairy’s website and order one from them through Amazon (for $18.50).
This would make such a fun gift for someone you know is a Foodie or loves cheese. And how much fun would this be to make with your kids? Great holiday gift and stocking stuffer.
I’ll be back soon with an update and let you know how it goes. I’ve got a nice piece of mozzarella that I brought home from the market yesterday sitting in the fridge that I have to use up first. It’s going to be a tomato and mozzarella filled weekend for sure!
One last thing….I started a Facebook Page for my blog Pickles and Cheese. It might make it easier for some of you to follow. Just click here: Pickles and Cheese Facebook Page and be sure to click on “LIKE” when you get there. Thanks!!
