The Perfect Housewarming Gift: DIY Cheesemaking Kits

Finding a gift for the new homeowner can be difficult. If you have a foodie in your life that just got a new home, consider a DIY cheesemaking kit to welcome them to the community. Artisanal cheeses are extremely popular and delicious. Most people have the equipment needed to make homemade cheese, a stainless-steel pot, a thermometer, measuring utensils and a strainer. You may even start your friends on a new journey of cheesemaking.

Start With Soft Cheeses

Ricotta and mozzarella cheeses are good recipes to start with. The kits are inexpensive and come with everything except milk to make homemade cheese. Although cheesemaking is 10 percent science, the biggest percentage is craft. Once someone understands the basic elements of making ricotta or mozzarella cheeses, other ingredients can be used to change the flavor and to create unique cheeses to be served at a party or potluck. Look for cheese cloth bags to make draining cheeses easier.

Brie, Camembert and Feta Also Available

Challenge the new homeowner with a kit to make brie or camembert cheese. These cheeses are a bit more complex, but highly rewarding when you taste the final product. Cheesemaking is a lost art that can be brought back into the home with a kit that makes it easy. Just add milk and effort to get a beautiful cheese that tastes better than commercial products.

Make Butter, Yogurt, Buttermilk or Kefir

Locally sourced ingredients taste better and have a lower carbon footprint than products shipped across the country. Give the gift of homemade dairy products with kits to make butter, kefir or yogurt in the home. Using milk from a local dairy supports the local economy and offers a connection to the product.
