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.

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.

Booklet not accurate
I've tried three times, once was store bought milk, not good, twice with farm raw milk, both times it did not set up. I warmed again and added another quarter tablet, It did work better. But when I viewed the recipe on line it said it may take thirty minutes. I will go to the farm again, and let it sit for up to thirty minutes, but also may try a different rennet.
My wife and I made some cheese yesterday she was having fun making cheese but I forgot to tell her to save some cheese for the pizza today, no fresh cheese for the pizza, all gone. So we’re going to make more.
