Much like the revelation that you can make your own vanilla extract blew my mind, I was pretty shocked to hear you can make your own cheese pretty easily. Of course I had to try it.
I bought this kit from Amazon and followed along. As far as I can tell, any kit would do or you could just buy some rennet, citric acid. I won't bore you with every detailed step because you can find those easily online but let's just say Im enjoying some delicious Brooklyn Limestone cheese right now.
warning: cheese making is much harder when trying to photograph it without getting curds on your camera! do this at your own risk.
I think it would be pretty fun to mix in my own cheesy creation into the cheese board at my next party. Granted, it won't win any awards but its a fun conversation starter.
What do you think?
