About This Product
This special gift includes our Mozzarella & Ricotta Kit gift boxed with ribbon to give to the cheese loving person in your life.
Share the gift of homemade mozzarella with a basic mozzarella & ricotta kit. If you have friends and family who love cheese or who are interested in how to make their own, then this is the perfect gift. When you first start out, you do not want a complicated kit. You want something that is easy to follow. If a cheese is too complex, beginners may be discouraged from learning further because it seems too difficult. This homemade ricotta cheese kit makes it so easy that even your kids can get in on the fun. It has everything to show your family how to make cheese on their own. Our Kit is superior as it includes an easy to read large dial thermometer, French made draining basket mould, and plenty of Citric Acid, Cheese Salt, and lots of Rennet tablets to make many batches.
Easy to follow instructions are a must-have when it comes to these kits and this gift box comes with detailed instructions. The kit comes in a charming ricotta basket with plastic wrap to hold all of the pieces inside, then tied off at the top with a ribbon. It makes it perfect for holiday, birthday or any other type of gift. It has almost everything that you need to make your own cheese. All you have to supply is the milk and a warming kettle. Milk should be raw, non-homogenized whole milk or whole milk with 1/20 part heavy cream.
Cheesemaking gifts are always a welcome gift from those who enjoy cheese. It allows your friends and family to explore a new hobby and develop a new skill. While there are some cheeses that form better in the hands of experts, ricotta and mozzarella are two of the easier cheeses to make, with the right ingredients and tools. No matter how advanced you are, with the right directions, it is easy.
