Example text

Both UP and UHT processes wipe out friendly bacteria and are unsuitable for making cheese. Why, you might ask, would dairies sterilize their milk in the first place? For one thing, it extends milk’s shelf life from eighteen to sixty days. For another, unhealthy cows carry diseases. Dairies turn the heat up under their vats in the hope of destroying these pathogens—often without success. Proper herd management is the better solution. Look for the UP label. Ultra-pasteurized milk is unsuitable for making cheese.

EQUIPMENT If you are a beginner, start with recipes for fresh cheeses that require no pressing or aging. More advanced cheese making requires more advanced tools. The following are the essential items you can’t make cheese without: ✤ Colander or 8-inch strainer. You will line this with cheesecloth to drain your curds. I prefer a colander with high feet. ✤ Cooking pots. Stainless steel, glass, or enamel pots are useful because they are easy to keep clean and will not react with acid created during the cheese-making process.

7. Set the jar where it can be kept at 75 degrees Fahrenheit for about eighteen hours as the milk ripens. 8. The finished culture should have the consistency of yogurt (or buttermilk, if you’re using goat’s milk) and separate cleanly from the sides of the jar. 9. Chill the culture in the fridge right away. It will keep unopened for up to two weeks. To freeze your mother culture, sterilize plastic ice cube trays. Fill the trays, cover them with plastic wrap, and freeze them. Be sure to label the frozen cubes “mesophilic” with the date.
