So far it is fun but I like learning new things too.
I've only made the mozzarella so far. It had easy to follow directions and tasted great my kids loved it!
The kit has every thing in it but the milk. and the instruction are pretty easy to follow. the instructions say 30 minutes to make...haha. it took me about 1 1/2 hours...probably because this was the first time to make any king of cheese. It didn't turn out perfect but I made cheese!! overall it was fun and I am going to make the ricotta next. Definitely need gloves for stretching the cheese while it is hot.
I bought this as a gift for a family member that is very interested in producing and preserving her own food. Liked the looks of it so much that I bought a set for myself. One for her, one for me . . .
I never knew I could make my own cheese! Ricki’s kits make cheese making so fun and easy.
