• DIY CHEESE PACKAGE (FETA, GREEK YOGURT, & CREAM CHEESE)

    This package includes one Feta, Greek Yogurt, & Yogurt Cream Cheese DIY Kit and a copy of One-Hour Cheese by Claudia Lucero.*

    ONE-HOUR CHEESE
    It’s a DIY cook’s dream come true: It’s pizza night, and you’ve made not only the crust and sauce but the mozzarella, too. Or you're whipping up quesadillas for a snack, using your homemade Triple Pepper Hack. Or the dinner party's in high gear and out comes the cheese plate … and yes, you've made all the cheeses on it. Even better: You made them all earlier that day. In a cookbook whose results seem like magic but whose recipes and instructions are specific, easy-to-follow and foolproof, Claudia Lucero shows step by step (with every step photographed) how to make 16 fresh cheeses at home, using easily available ingredients and tools, in an hour or less. The approach is basic and based on thousands of years of cheesemaking wisdom: Heat milk, add coagulant, drain, salt and press. Simple variations produce delicious results across three categories: Creamy and Spreadable, Firm and Chewy, and Melty and Gooey. And just as delicious, the author shows the best ways to serve them, recipes included: Squeaky “Pasta” Primavera, Mozzarella Kebab Party, and Curry in a Hurry Lettuce Wraps.

    FETA, GREEK YOGURT, & YOGURT CREAM CHEESE DIY KIT
    Make your own tangy feta, Greek yogurt, and yogurt cream cheese with an Urban Cheesecraft Kit!

    Your DIY Kit includes these carefully selected and tested supplies:

    • Instruction/recipe handbook and unlimited email support
    • Fine mesh, 100 percent cotton cheesecloth (also known as butter muslin)
    • Glass dairy thermometer (alcohol, not mercury)
    • Vegetarian rennet tablets
    • Yogurt starter cultures
    • Pure, non-iodized, non-GMO flake salt

    The ingredients allow you to make at least eight batches of feta and about 24 batches of yogurt treats. You can reuse the recipes, thermometer, and cloth and find refills of rennet tablets and salt in the Urban Cheesecraft shop online when you run out. Simply add cow's or goat's milk and you will be eating and sharing homemade, all-natural feta, Greek yogurt and yogurt cream cheese! A batch is about 8 ounces to 1 1/2 pounds (depending on what you make), so you'll have plenty of supplies to experiment with different herbs, shapes, and recipes. Though these are not instant treats, the wait times are minimal and worth it!

    • Plain yogurt (the starter) is ready in 12 hours or more (most of it being passive wait time)
    • Greek yogurt takes another four hours or more
    • Yogurt cream cheese takes another eight hours or more
    • Feta requires 1/4 cup of yogurt (store bought or homemade) and is ready in one week (Compare that to recipes that take 3 months!)

    FOOD SAFETY AND HANDLING: Please note that this kit and its supplies are hand-poured, hand-folded and assembled in a food-safe, fully licensed space. The food items are all gluten-free but packaged in a room that comes in contact with wheat, soy, corn, nuts and other food allergens. The kits are also vegetarian-friendly.

  • MASONTOPS COMPLETE MASON JAR FERMENTATION KIT

    This kit is perfect for beginners or as a gift. Including enough product to make four batches at the same times, plus the all natural Pickle Packer, the value of this starter kit cannot be beat. Packed thoughtfully, and sold with a free download of a step-by-step guide, this product is sure to convert anyone curious about fermenting their own foods. Kit includes: - 4 Pickle Pebbles (Wide) - 4 Pickle Pipes (Wide) - 1 Pickle Packer The Pickle Pipe is a super simple one-piece waterless airlock that allows gas to escape as necessary without letting any contaminants back flow into the jar, and it screws into place using any standard mason jar band. FDA food-grade certified, waterless, dishwasher-safe, and more compact... the Pickle Pipe is the natural evolution of the mason jar airlock. Once screwed into place, you can forget about the Pickle Pipe for days, or even weeks. There is no need to "burp" your jars manually each day, fumble with multi-piece airlocks, or monitor the "moat" of water-based airlocks. It is truly a "set and forget" solution. Pickle Pebbles have been specifically designed for use with fermentation and take the guess work out of your lacto ferments by ensuring your veggies stay below the surface of the brine thereby eliminating exposure to oxygen (which is the main cause of failure when using lacto fermenting methods). Pickle Pebbles PLUS+ are designed for use in wide mouth canning jars, and can also be used in traditional ceramic crocks. With the Pickle Pebble PLUS+, one weight is often enough to keep veggies below the brine. Dimensions: 2.75" diameter with 0.75" thickness. Pickle Pebbles are made of non-iridized soda glass which is completely inert and guarantees that no other substances leach into your ferment. The Pickle Packer has been specifically designed for small-batch fermentation of sauerkraut and other veggies in both wide-mouth and regular-mouth mason jars. Measuring 10" tall, 2.5" at the wide end and 2" at the opposite end, our unique design allows both ends to be used for packing vegetables for your ferments. This allows the Pickle Packer to be used in a wide variety of fermenting jars and containers. Pickle Packers are made from all natural untreated Acacia wood and finished with a food-safe mineral oil to seal and protect. We chose to use Acacia wood not only because of its renowned strength (2x as strong as maple) and durability, but also because it is sustainable and eco-friendly.

  • FERMENTED FOODS FOR HEALTH

    Fermented foods have proven beneficial for a number of health conditions including candida overgrowth, IBS and digestive difficulties, sugar/carb cravings, and other inflammatory disorders. What's more, science is starting to show that our modern lifestyle of completely eschewing bacteria via pasteurized foods, hand sanitizers, disinfectants and antibiotics is actually making us more, not less, susceptible to illness and allergies. Regular inclusion of fermented foods in the diet naturally combats bad bacteria and strengthens the immune system. Fermented Foods for Health includes meal plans of fermented foods for addressing specific ailments and repairing the metabolism. Author Deirdre Rawlings includes 75 delicious recipes that show readers how to ferment everything from meats to vegetables, fruits and dairy. She explains how to use each for specific health benefits, such as balancing the body's PH, increasing enzyme production and strengthening immunity.

Original and delicious recipes offer up such delights as jams and jellies, hot-smoked oysters, and fresh tomato salsa. Curing and Smoking is ideal for adventurous cooks, modern pioneers and all food crafters.
