There are plenty of cheeses that are very easy to make from home, especially if you can find a source for raw milk that is both unpasteurized and unhomogenized. Raw milk is a controversial milk in some quarters. There is some debate that using or drinking raw milk may contain bacteria that could cause certain types of illness. If you want to use raw milk, do be sure to read up about the issues and make an informed decision on this product. Raw milk makes cheese more easily because of the kinds of bacteria that are needed to make milk in to cheese. Regular cheese is tough to develop culture in it because it has been so sterilized. And, frankly, cheese is made from various types of bacteria. That is how cheeses get their particular flavor and texture. This recipe helps things along by using lemon juice to curdle the cheese. Curdling helps separate the solids in the milk from the liquid or whey, and so cheese can result.

This is a fun project for an afternoon with the kids. Be sure to get a thermometer since temperature is quite important to making cheese. But it isn’t difficult and only requires a few special tools, all of which are inexpensive to buy and that can be found pretty much anywhere. Set aside this weekend, and get your kids involved. It will be plenty of fun for everyone.
