Does anybody make cheese?

Does anybody make their own cheese? I have several recipes and a pair of cold feet . . .

I don't, but I'd love to. One of those someday projects ... just recently re-read some of my bookmarked websites on making your own cheese. I'm thinking making cream cheese and ricotta would be good starting projects.

I hope others post; I'll read their contributions with great interest.

I would really enjoy that too. Alas I only have an apartment. Not much room. Plus I only really enjoy hard or crumbly cheeses.

I came here specifically to ask the same question, and hoped for a more positive response. There must've been something on TV this weekend to get people thinking about making cheese (for me it was a thing about tuscany that showed some of the sheep milk cheese making)

So, do you need raw milk to being the process or can pasterized milk be used? Anyone have a site or two to point me at for cheese making.

and remember "blessed are the cheese makers" (free bottle of hot sauce if anyone knows where that's from :) )

You don't need raw milk to make cheese. In Australia, by law, producers have to use pasteurized milk. There is an ongoing debate as to whether raw milk produces better cheese.

That could only be from the crew of Monty Python :P.

PM me your address and we'll see if some of our hot sauce can make it to Aussie land.

Haha, its hot enough here already without the hot sauce adding to it :P.

Plus I really do prefer tomato sauce on my meat pies :).

Would anybody be interested in doing a group cheese making? We could pick a date or dates and all go at it at once. If the cheese doesn't come out right, we'll still have our war stories . . .

I have I think three recipes that look pretty straightforward and easy. I'll post them if anybody's interested. Oh, and I also have at least one recipe for cheesecake (found it in an old old cookbook) that uses cottage cheese. It would be fun to make it with cheese I've made myself . . . hmmmm . . . dept. of incentives???

There's an old Dixeland tune called "Didn't He Ramble"; stick an "S" in front of the "H" and that's me, all right. Geez. :roll: :D

OF: Haggis: I live in the hottest part of the US and use it anything :)

leigh: Please share the cheese recipes. I'm not a cottage cheese or cheese cake fan at all tho. Maybe we can find a recipe for Mascarpone cheese and make a Tiramisu
