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 kit to give away. Who’d like to win this useful item 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. I use butter muslin for straining a number of cheeses, including the Greek-style yogurt I make almost every week.
For a chance to win the kit, do these two simple things:
1. Subscribe — if you haven’t already — to my weekly email newsletter.
2. In the comments field below, tell me if you’ve ever tasted homemade cheese. Or, tell me how your tomatoes are coming along. Feeling shy? Just say “hello.”
I’d be ever so grateful if you clicked the “like” button, too.
The drawing expires on Friday, August 10, 2012, at 11:59PM EST. As always, I’ll use the little number-gadget at Random. org to select a winner. The winner will be notified by email.
