About This Product
To make homemade cheese is a journey for a lot of amateur and expert cheesemakers. It’s an old world style of food prep that is satisfying when you’re finished. Think about it, most things taste better with cheese. Most agree that it is better to taste homemade cheese than it is to buy it at the grocery store. When it comes down to it though, most do not know much about how to make cheese or that the process isn’t that difficult. It may take time, especially for aged cheeses, but it’s rewarding and it tends to taste a lot better. After all, you are able to customize the cheese how you like it and alter it to your taste.
When it comes to ingredients to make cheese, you need to have a microbial rennet or an animal rennet. This is the coagulant for cheese. It is going to play a role in texturing your cheese and flavoring it. It thickens the milk and turns it into cheese. This microbial rennet is vegetable based. What makes it stand out above an animal rennet is that it’s safe for vegetarian use and is also a kosher rennet.
This particular rennet should only be used on cheeses that do not have to be aged longer than a few months. Other types of rennets work better with long-aged cheeses. This is a double strength rennet, so be careful about how much you use. It is extremely potent. It comes in a convenient squeeze bottle, which makes it easy to develop your cheese.
In addition to being in a convenient packaging, there are special considerations made to ensure that none of the kosher rennet encounters non-kosher rennet.
