Cream Cheese

Used to make homemade cream cheese. I used cream from our Jersey Cow. Sterilized the cream and added the culture. Tastes great.

Best Cottage Cheese Ever

My cottage cheese is made with local, raw milk, Fresh Starter Culture (item# C3) and a wee bit of Flora Danica (item # C11). It smells heavenly and tastes great. The grandkids love it!
