Making Cheese at Home

I was having a rootle as you do in Lakeland the other day just passing the time of day during my dinner hour looking at all the goodies I cannot afford and making a mental wish list of some of the items that I would quite like when I espied some new products.  A little book entitled how to make soft cheese by Gerard Baker - it had only come in the other day £2.99 and I was one of the first to nab it.  It has seven recipes for home made cheese and they are:

 How To Make Soft Cheese

  • Mozzarella
  • Halloumi
  • Ricotta
  • Cottage
  • Cream
  • Fresh white
  • Feta

 Lakeland have since added a short video

The ingredients used are simple and ones that a lot of us have to hand at home anyway, using milk, rennet, yogurt or buttermilk

When I get a few minutes I am going to have a serious play as I usually have most of these ingredients to hand apart from the buttermilk which by the way is brilliant for scones and muffins.  Thought it might make a nice simple approach to making something very useful yourself without paying through the nose.

I have another cheese book called the Home Creamery which is also very good and has some cracking recipes in.  I really am itching to play though.

Oh and by the way the Easiyo yogurt sachets are also very good, peaches and cream, strawberries and cream and the greek yogurt and coconut is divine.

Should be on commission! 

Catch you all soon



P.S.  Should have also added that I came home with one each of the cheese moulds as well as the book.
