"This magical idea of making cheese at home was one of the first skills I set my sights on as a fledgling homesteader. Home Cheese Making has been my primary guide throughout all my home dairy adventures, and my sticky, tattered copy is a testament to the usefulness of this book! Without a doubt, this is the homemade cheese resource I recommend the most.".
