My 1st Queso Blanco
« on: February 02, 2015, 03:59:04 PM »
Yesterday I made my first cheese ever. Is an easy cheese I'm very excited. I read this forum a lot and I hope to keep advancing in the cheese making.

I use 1 gallon of milk pasteurized and homogenized .(I can't find quality milk here and the low quality we have available cost $6 per gallon)
1/2 cup of cider vinegar

 I did a little pressing with an idea from the Caldwell's book . Even with the expensive milk here I manage to reduce cost and the taste was far better than the stuff that is sold here. With this I convinced my wife that I need to keep learning about cheese making. Next I will try a mozzarella and next will buy a press(waiting for the new sturdypress to be released.

That's the one thing about making your own cheese-it tastes so much better than the commercial/industrial cheeses you buy in the store. Have a cheese for your success.  :D

Thanks for the cheese. I was getting problems with my wife because she was thinking I was losing my time. She was impressed with the difference in flavor and she is looking forward now for my next cheese.
