I've been thinking about these magical cheese kits too
Arent you supposed to use something like whipping cream? I talked to a local dairy farmer, he told me it was illegal for him to sell raw milk

this is not correct..you can successfully use homogenized milk to make cheeses...what was your source that said you could not?

I use goats milk for all my cheeses and it is "naturally" homogenized, meaning the fat in the milk stays suspended throughout the milk, the cream does not rise to the top, easily.

great!

to be honest, I also question the phrase "lightly pasteurized"...what the heck does that mean? is that like being almost pregnant?

Africhef welcome to DC!! As for cheesemaking, IMHO there are some things that are just easier to buy, but bless you and your pioneer spirit!!

If Kraft ever stops making that aeresol cheese in a can, then I may try and make my own. Until then though, bottoms up!! (why put it on a cracker?)

NO, NO, NO - Africhef you are doing it wrong. Crackers? Why do you think they put a mouthpiece on top of the can!!
