Yep, makes Parmesan :)

I guess we’ll see if it really works in a few months.

I love the packets. Just the right size to go with the recipes. Takes the guess work out of the equation. Can't wait to try my aging Caciotta :)

Wonderful cultures!

I’ve been making cheese for a few years now, buying raw grass-fed milk from a local Amish farm. My very favorite is Manchego from the Home Cheese Making book by Ricki. It uses both mesophilic and thermophilic cultures and can be aged for different lengths of time for a variety of nuances. All the cultures I have ordered from NE Cheese are fresh and do their jobs quite well. I also buy all my other cheesemaking supplies here and am always happy with my orders. The photo I am including shows three aging Manchego cheeses that I have bandaged using coconut oil (a total experiment!). They are getting a nice layer of mold and they smell SO pungent and good! We ate one wheel over the holidays that was only aged two weeks and it was awesome. Can’t wait to try these in a few months.

Adventure in a little packet!

We made cheese with visiting family this Christmas and Hanukkah. It worked beautifully in our Skyr, our Bauerhaus cheese, too. We are sending some home with our kids. The little packets that are premeasured make the process more precise and control messiness when a 2 1/2 year old grandchild wants in on the adventure!
