How to Make Cheese at Home

You can make a simple cheese using ingredients and equipment found in most kitchens. "Yoghurt cheese" is a basic introduction. While not the traditional kind of cheese you're probably used to, without any additives it tastes very similar to cream cheese or neufchatel. Alternatively, milk and acid make a simple, spreadable cheese similar to ricotta. Once you've mastered this, try your hand at the process used for most cheeses, a more difficult project involving specialized ingredients such as rennet.
