Make your own tangy Feta, Greek Yogurt and Yogurt Cream Cheese with this DIY Kit from Urban Cheesecraft!
The Yogurt and Feta Cheese Kit includes:
- Email support as needed
- Butter Muslin (fine-mesh cotton cheesecloth)
- Gluten-free, Vegetarian Rennet Tablets
- Yogurt Starter Cultures
- Cheese Salt
What you need: Simply add milk, follow the illustrated instructions and you will be eating and sharing homemade, all-natural Feta, Greek Yogurt and Yogurt Cream Cheese! Pasteurized store-bought or raw farm-fresh milk both work. Make sure your store bought milk is not ultra-pasteurized or UHT, ultra-heat pasteurized.
Dietary guidelines: The Greek Yogurt & Feta Cheese Kit is gluten free, Non-GMO and vegetarian friendly.
Quantity: The Yogurt & Feta Cheese Kit makes at least 8 batches of Feta cheese and about 24 batches of Yogurt treats. A batch is about 8 oz - 1.5 lbs. (depending on what you make), so you'll have plenty of supplies to experiment with different herbs, shapes and recipes.
Time needed: Though these are not instant treats, the wait time is minimal and so worth it!
- Plain Yogurt (our starter) is ready in 12+ hours
- Greek Yogurt takes another 4+ hours
- Yogurt Cream Cheese takes another 8+ hours
- Feta requires 1/4 cup of yogurt (store bought or homemade) and is ready in 1 week- compare to recipes that take 3 months!
Good to know: This kit is for a level 2 beginner and a great introduction into aging and culturing. This kit is perfect for someone who has made a couple of simple fresh cheeses. The steps are not more difficult but the recipes take longer and require the confidence acquired with a little familiarity.
