I stumbled upon this post at the perfect moment! I just read in Barbara Kingsolver's 'Animal, Vegetable, Miracle' about making my own cheese and I was intrigued. Laura at Heavenly Homemakers posted detailed steps for her cheese making. Just what I needed - pictures to answer my questions!
We don't drink raw milk around here so I am waiting until milk goes on sale and then trying this out. Since store-bought milk is homogenized and pasteurized, it won't make butter (missing the cream), just the cheese.
