• MASTERING BASIC CHEESEMAKING

    The craft of home cheesemaking is exploding in popularity. However most “beginner” books are essentially loosely organized collections of recipes that lack a progressive approach to teaching the fundamentals of this exciting and satisfying traditional skill. Mastering Basic Cheesemaking provides a complete hands-on guide to making cheese and other fermented dairy products from scratch, geared toward helping the novice cheesemaker develop the intuition and abilities needed for success, especially in the real world of the home kitchen.

    This well-illustrated, clearly written practical guide assumes no experience on the part of the aspiring cheesemaker. Topics include:

    • Understanding your ingredients, tools and techniques.
    • Whipping up “instant cheeses,” such as ricotta and paneer, while learning basic milk chemistry.
    • Progressing to fermented dairy products such as kefir, yogurt and sour cream.
    • Using bacteria and coagulant to create spreadable and tender cheeses like quark, chèvre, cream cheese and American-style cottage cheese.
    • Graduating to curdled, aged and ripened cheese—mozzarella, feta, cheddar, gouda, and parmesan.

    Whether you are a budding cheesemaker, avid do-it-yourselfer, foodie, homesteader or cheese professional, this complete course in beginning cheesemaking from one of North America’s foremost instructors is packed with everything you need to create delicious, nourishing and beautiful classic cheeses and other dairy delights.

  • SWEET MARY'S WOOD BUTTER MOLD - CHERRY

    Mold and press out a one-pound block of your own butter, or smaller blocks depending upon how far back you pull the press, with this hand-made butter mold! These molds are designed and manufactured by Homesteader's Supply here in the USA. Included is a free culture that turns your butter into a flavorful and healthy product full of beneficial lacto-bateria, so you get the same health benefits as yogurt. Also provided are instructions for using the butter press, and a receipe for making butter with the culture. Each butter press (made of hard Maple or hard Cherry wood) is finished by craftsmen, and then oiled with 100% Non-GMO organic Coconut Oil. Simply reapply oil when needed. The word "butter" is carved into the side of each mold. Made with precision, each follower fits into the mold extremely well so that little butter is left behind after pressing out your one-pound block of butter. Press room temperature butter over and over with the same mold without having to soak the mold or freeze the butter. From Homesteader's Supply: So, how did we get the design and name for our wonderful butter mold? Back in the early 1900s, my great Aunt Mary lived on a farm with her husband Henry and their many critters. Her favorite cow was her Jersey named Sweet Marabelle that produced the most cream of any of their 4 other dairy girls. Mary churned all that cream into the best butter around that area. But, with so much butter to trade and give away to family and friends, she had Henry make her a mold that would press out block after block "swift as the wind" as Aunt Mary used to say. That's when Henry nicknamed her Sweet Mary! Although Sweet Mary and her butter mold are gone, the memories remain!
