How To Make Cream Cheese

 

 Use cow, goat or sheep milk & 1 quart (liter) of whole milk and

1 quart (liter) of heavy cream(ok if its ultra pasteurized
cream).

Warm using a water bath (double boiler method) milk and cream to 75f (24c).

Add (per usage rate on culture packet) Mesophile Aroma B or

Flora Danica (recommended & most popular) or MA 4001-2 starter culture.

Then add the rennet and calcium chloride. Wait until milk forms a curd at approximately (24c) 75f or room temperature is ok. This will take 12-14 hours until you see clear whey on top of the curd.

Pour curd mass into one draining bag and let drain for 6-8 or a bit more hours at room temperature.

After this period, remove cream cheese from the bag and salt and herb to taste. It will last up to two weeks in the refrigerator.

 

Enjoy.
