I need to know what kind of Rennet to buy. This will be my first attempt at making cheese. What is easiest to use, lasts the longest and gives best results? I plan to order from Hoeggers later today. Thanks
regular rennet comes from one of the stomachs of mammals. i bet you back in the day, someone slaughtered an animal, used one of the stomachs to store milk, and one day found that the milk had curdled. as for jello....i have no made up story on that one! lolYeah, I got vegetable rennet - but in tablets. Should be arriving today. I'm curious who ever thought to try putting animal rennet in milk to see what happens. Of course... I wonder stuff like that about a lot of our food items. Jello being the other real "now WHO thought of THAT?" one.
Are there other ingredients your talking about though?
And what exactly is kefir? I've seen it... but have no idea what it is or what it's used for.
In my mis-spent youth I cooked in a barbecue restaurant and saw gelatin render out of bone-in meats many times. Sugaring and fruit flavoring it had to have been a leap, but maybe happened when a fruit glaze mixed with the gelatin in the bottom of the pan.... Of course... I wonder stuff like that about a lot of our food items. Jello being the other real "now WHO thought of THAT?" one.
