"I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this kit! The mozzarella was delicious and soooo easy to make!"

This cheese making kit is fun for all ages, simply add milk and enjoy. What could be better than making fresh, homemade mozzarella in your own kitchen.
With this kit you can go from fresh milk to stretching mozzarella in approximately 30 minutes. Along with mozzarella you can also make fresh whole milk ricotta, yum.
When making mozzarella, or any cheese, we always suggest local dairies, when available. For mozzarella the milk needs to be processed below 170F, at the dairy, for proper curd formation.

Use the freshest milk you can find, local milk is always best, when available.
Milk that has been pasteurized above 170F can be problematic for curd formation, when making 30 minute mozzarella. If you see problems with curd formation, we recommend contacting the dairy and asking about their milk processing temperatures.
This kit can be made with any type of low heat processed milk, including goat milk and powdered milk.

I made mozzarella for my first try because I heard it was pretty foolproof (and everybody knows what a fool I can be). It was easy and fun. I got fresh tomatoes and basil from my garden, made a maple sweetened balsamic reduction, added slices of the newly born mozzarella I had made and put together a Caprese Salad for my son's to try on one my son's birthday. It was a success. I can't wait to try other cheeses.
I have made Mozzarella before using NECM supplies, but that was some years ago. While I had most of the ingredients already in my kitchen, I decided to get the whole kit and instructions to make sure my bases were covered. The real secret was finding a dairy close by, so that the milk that I used was inside a cow less than 24 hours before I made the cheese. Worked as advertised, just in time for the basil and tomatoes to ripen in my garden. Caprese for all, if you happen to be in my kitchen. I am pouring the whey on my strawberries and herbs, and even the sick tree in front.
First time cheese maker and the kit was great. I had everything needed to make cheese with lots of helpful tips along the process.
Love the kit fabulous homemade cheese!!! Highly recommend!!
Easy to follow directions. Took me a closer to an hour but very easy.
