Using a kit to make delicious halloumi cheese
Making cheese is easy thanks to this kit I was sent. It is made by The Big Cheese Making Kit Company and includes the rennet, muslin, thermometer and added ingredients to make up to 12 batches of cheese, each producing around 900g of cheese.
I’ve often fancied trying to make cheese, but recipes I’ve seen have either needed too much specialist equipment or made vast quantities, far too much for a family. But this kit made a useful 900g in one batch, a perfect quantity. It is very important to use unhomogenised milk, so check carefully when you are shopping – the gold top milk needed comes in two forms, one with the cream on top and the other with it blended in. Only the one with the cream on top will do, and not all supermarkets sell it.
The instructions are very clear and laid out in simple step by step stages - above you can see photos of the major stages taken as I went through the process. . Although there are a lot of steps to follow, each step is simple and clearly explained, and the cheese I made was delicious – a very rich, creamy flavour with that characteristic halloumi “squeak”.
