I made cream cheese!
Yummy, home made cream cheese
It turns out that making cream cheese is super, super easy. Mix, wait, strain…poof! you’ve got cream cheese. I followed the cream cheese recipe on Wonderland Kitchen, and it really came out perfectly.
I used buttermilk as the starter, and the only minor change I made was to use 1/4 of a Mad Millie rennet tablet which I got from yuppiechef.
It is a bit cooler at the moment, so to keep it at the right temperature (about 22-25°C) I put it into a cooler box with a filled hot water bottle (not touching) which worked perfectly.
The next step is to find a cost effective supply of bulk cream, then cream cheese can be a part of every meal….nom, nom, nom.
