IT WAS RICKI CARROLL’S CHEESE-MAKING KIT that introduced me to the wonders of homemade mozzarella and ricotta. Because I’d like your taste buds to do a happy dance, too, I’ve purchased an extra cheese-making kit to give away. Who wants to win it in a random drawing?
If you only know tasteless, rubbery mozzarella, and bland, gummy ricotta from the supermarket, get ready for a colossal treat. I can tell you from my own experience that these two cheeses, when made from scratch, offer incredible flavor and texture. Try making them once, and I suspect you’ll never buy their commercial counterparts again.
The kit I’m giving away contains enough rennet and citric acid to make 30 batches of cheese. It also contains a thermometer, and a large piece of butter-muslin. Butter muslin is used for draining the whey from ricotta.
