My husband is from Chihuahua, Mexico and he longed to make the special dry cheese (queso ranchero) for grating that his parents used to make. Our first attempt was not very successful, but it was certainly not the fault of the basket mold. The basket worked perfectly - It was the cheesemaking personnel that failed! We'll keep trying and enjoying using our little basket mold.
6# basket mold is AWESOME
I received this for Christmas from my daughter. I had been talking about wanting it to make goat milk Ricotta Salatta. It has been so great, I need several more soon. Thank you for making it easy to obtain the items needed for my small scale production.
That's exactly what I needed
I was previously using 2 plastic strainers to make a'la Korycinski Cheese. They were working just fine but then I purchased 6 lb Traditional Basket Cheese Mold and saw the difference. First of all, I needed just one mold to be able to flip the cheese over and then, when my cheese was ready, I fully appreciated a perfect design of this mold - I had no problems removing my cheese from the mold, I got perfect shape and great pattern. I make this cheese from 4 gallons of milk and 6 lb mold size is ideal for it because a'la Korycinski Cheese rises in a mold. Please take a look at the cheese I made several days ago using Herbs de Provence to flavor it. Big kudos to all New England Cheese Making! Greg PS. I also own two 2 lb Canestrato Cheese Molds but haven't used them yet because my wife and friends requested bigger batches of cheese.
Great All Around Mold
We have used this mold for both cheese and butter to have the unique pattern on the surface. Friends loved the textured surface on our butter rounds.
