This starter culture is fabulous! I used it to make my first batch of quark and it is absolutely delicious! Thank you!
I’ve used New England products for years. But hadn’t used it starter culture before, it made such a great difference in the texture of my Creole Cream Cheese. I’m from Louisiana and ate Creole Cream Cheese about every week as a child. I’m 70 years old live in Texas last 40 years. Been making my on CCC, but your products the calcium chloride, animal rennet and C-1buttermilk starter cultured made my CCC, taste like I remembered as a child. Thank you, native of Napolenville,LA.
This is the best Buttermilk that I ever had. It took 24 hours for the culture to set up, I added 1 TBS of salt to the gallon of 2% and put it in the fridge. You will be very pleased with the result.
Great product as always from this company!
This culture has never failed. I use this buttermilk in my baked goods and my customers love it!!! Buttermilk pie is a permanent menu item.
