Homemade Cheese from Your Survival Kitchen?

A while back I came across one of those stories telling how prepping is becoming mainstream. It said you can find all kinds of things on the Internet about self reliant living, including how to have homemade cheese from your survival kitchen. Well, rather than tell you how to make cheese, I’ll offer something better.

It’s a book called Home Cheese Making, by Ricki Carroll, and it’s this week’s DestinySurvival Pick. Even one of its reviewers says it’s better than what you can find online about cheese making.

It’s also reviewed in the November/December 2010 issue of “Backwoods Home Magazine.” In fact there’s quite an article in that same issue about cheese making and how Carroll’s book was so useful. If the review or lengthier article were available online from the magazine’s site, I’d share an excerpt with you, but sorry, I can’t..

The book’s full title is Home Cheese Making: Recipes for 75 Delicious Cheeses. That should tell you something about its depth and scope. For example, discover how to make farmhouse cheddar, gouda, fromage blanc, queso blanco, marscarpone, ricotta,
and 30-minute mozzarella. There are also recipes for sour cream, buttermilk, yogurt, and keifer.

Home Cheese Making is published by Storey Publishing, a company well known as a resource for helpful books on self reliant and country living.

Cheese making can be a time consuming endeavor, and you’ll need the right equipment and ingredients. But if you’re endeavoring to live a more self reliant lifestyle, you already know few things are easy or convenient. We’ve been spoiled by what once were luxuries.

As one reviewer notes, if you’re familiar with pickling, canning, making your own beer or wine, you’re well on your way to being able to make your own cheese. So let this book be your guide for deciding what cheeses you should make for your family.

If you’ve been thinking it’s time to try your hand at homemade cheese, hard or soft, buy Home Cheese Making. Click on its title wherever you see it linked in this post. You’ll be taken to the page where it’s featured, and you can order from there.
