blog launch giveaway week, day five: mozzarella & ricotta cheese making kit When people say that they are unfamiliar with fermented foods it often simply means they are unaware that many of the foods they are already eating are fermented.

Take bread, for instance. It was widely made with sourdough throughout much of history. Beer and wine are another fermented food that many of us enjoy. But the one food that almost everyone has eaten that can be counted as a fermented food is cheese.

Cheese is plentiful in American melting pot cuisine. It’s in our tacos, atop our pizza, and in our sandwiches. But cheese is a very traditional food, in fact it was born out of the need to preserve milk when there was no electric refrigeration.

Cheesemaking can be intimidating, but, much like culturing something like kefir or kombucha, once you understand the basics of it you can practice this age-old art right in your home kitchen.

To get you started Cultures for Health has a wide range of articles for the beginner, intermediate, or old pro. With recipes for some of your favorite store-bought cheeses and products like rennet and cheese starter cultures; you’ll be on your way to making artisinal cheese for your whole family.

    I’m so sad that I was shown this wonderful blog, too late to enter the giveaways! Although I am new at culturing foods, and have purchased my cultures from your amazing store, I wasn’t made aware of the blog until now. What a wealth of information. Thank you!
