What’s the best type of milk to make fresh cheese?
Not all milk is created equal! For your cheesemaking adventure, be sure to choose the most minimally-processed milk you can find. Kalona SuperNatural’s organic milk and cream are great options when making cheese, because it’s not ultra-pasteurized. Other organic dairy brands practice ultra-pasteurization, which helps milk travel great distances and gives it a longer shelf life. What people don’t know is that ultra-pasteurization alters the structure of the milk. Kalona SuperNatural milk comes from small Amish and Mennonite farms in the heartland of America. It’s not only organic, but also non- homogenized (you can see cream on top) and batch (or vat) pasteurized at low temperatures making it perfect for cheesemaking!

Mozzarella & Mascarpone Fresh Cheesemaking Kit
Mozzarella: Fresh Mozzarella is a creamy, semi-soft cheese with a mild flavor. Try it in a Caprese salad, pizza, lasagna, or served with fresh tomatoes from the garden!
Mascarpone: Mascarpone is a cross between between cream and butter with a rich flavor. Enjoy it in pasta, with fresh strawberries, in an Italian espresso, or in desserts like Tiramisu.
Ricotta & Burrata Fresh Cheesemaking Kit
Ricotta: Ricotta is a creamy cheese with a soft texture and mild flavor. It’s firm but not solid and is extremely versatile. Ricotta can be enjoyed in both savory and sweet dishes, including cannoli, dense cheesecakes, stuffed pasta, or lasagna!
Burrata: Burrata is a tender pouch of soft cheese encasing creamy curds. Burrata is meant to be served fresh and is wonderful with grilled bread, roasted vegetables or in pasta.
