        Not as easy as people say

        By Arlene

        from Seattle

        I am looking for a video to show how to make this cheese as it would be SO helpful to be able to see how it should appear at each stage. Also, warnings of things that you need to avoid such as what happens if the water is too hot at the end, etc. I got a very small log of too-soft cheese from a gallon of whole milk. I am embarrassed to say I gave this as a gift, too. I should have tried it out first. Perhaps with more instructions I would love this, too. But for now -- not so much.

                            The idea of this kit was intriguing. It is not as easy as portrayed in the catalog. I had to buy a special thermometer to use with the kit. When I called your company to ask what a dairy thermometer was, I was told I could just use a candy thermometer, which is not true. A candy thermometer temperature starts at 200 degrees which is well over the temperature prescribed in the recipe

                              I can now call myself a cheese maker! What a thrill to reap the rewards of such a kit. I never thought I would ever be able to make my own mozzarella, and this kit proved to me that I can do it. Simple instructions, and everything you need (except the milk) to be successful. Wonderful!

                                  We have made several batches now and this is foolproof. Friends don't believe me when I say "We made cheese". It is fun, easy and exciting to actually do this yourself. You can add any seasoning you like: red pepper flakes, chipotle chili powder, cracked black pepper.....we have even rolled our cheese in garlic flavored olive oil----outstanding!!!

                                        My family loves cheese, especially fun to eat kinds of cheese! And when they learned it was homemade--well sweetie, just get out of the way! It was a complete hit! I've made it twice now, the first time it seemed to take me a while since I was not sure about anything but with the instruction booklet and the great pictures, I made it. The second batch went so much more smoothly. I don't know that I will ever buy mozzarella again. I am trying the ricotta next to use in my homemade lasagna. My family already thinks my lasagna is the best, hopefully using homemade ricotta in my lasagna will make me famous!! Well, famous within my family!
