There are many interesting DIY projects to try, but this one is probably one of the most delectable to do. Making your own cheese! Yes, DIY cheese! With the proper equipment and ingredients, making cheese is actually quite straightforward and a lot of fun. Urban Cheesecraft is the company that makes DIY Cheese Kits and they have quite a few on offer, depending on your taste – Mozzarella & Ricotta, Feta, Farmers’ Cheese, Crumbly Goat Cheese, Buratta & Mascarpone, Chevre and Paneer & Queso Blanco.
Whichever kit you choose, it will take you an hour, on average, to make the cheese in question. Urban Cheesecraft’s website also has recipes for each of the cheeses we have mentioned and you can also buy a book with cheese-making recipes there too. Urban Cheesecraft has demystified the entire process of making cheese so you can see and try for yourself how easy it actually is to make delicious cheese. The beauty of homemade cheese is that you can make it to perfectly suit your taste and season it as much or as little as you want to. All of the DIY Cheese Kits contain everything you might need to become your own cheese maker, apart from milk, of course.
For instance, the Mozzarella & Ricotta kit comes in compostable packaging and contains non-GMO citric acid, glass thermometer, non-GMO vegetarian rennet tablets, all gluten-free ingredients, cheese salt and butter muslin cheesecloth. For those of you who don’t know, rennet is a complex of enzymes used in production of most cheeses.
The Buratta & Mascarpone kit also comes in recycled / recyclable packaging in which you will find pure flake salt, cotton or butter muslin cheesecloth, vegetarian non-GMO rennet tables, dairy thermometer, gluten free non-GMO citric acid and gluten free non-GMO salt.
