Description

Fromagina starter culture was developed by Bob & Ricki Carroll. It is a cross between Fromage Blanc and Mascarpone. Fromagina is excellent in cooking or served by itself as a delightfully, creamy spread. This is an easy cheese to start with, we highly recommend it for both beginners and advanced cheesemakers alike.

Super creamy!

The culture works great and the results taste great! I make dips (savory and sweet) and mix in some jam for a breakfast treat. I use a 14x14inch almond nut bag when draining it—makes for easy cleanup!

Cheese & Crackers

This is a great soft cheese that can be eaten without the aging process I mixed in the French herbs and it's delicious. My wife really likes it too.

Smooth and creamy

This cheese is quite simple to make and tastes great. It's smooth and creamy with a mild flavor. We love to eat it with crackers. Additionally, I will add apple pie or pumpkin pie spice to taste. Sweeten with honey or sugar for a real treat on graham crackers or ginger snaps.

The Best

Been using Ricki's Fromagina for several years now in my goat milk. FANTASTIC. Love how versatile it is. Because it is a mild cheese it takes on any flavorings I put in it really well. Freezes very easily which is a big plus for when we are not milking. Thank you Ricki.
