Easy and tastes great
The Mascarpone Kit was my first time trying to make cheese to make home made tiramisu. It was a bit daunting not being certain as to how it should turn out. The directions were very simple to use. I look forward to buying other cheese making products in the future. If youre not sure how to make the Mascarpone Cheese, here is what I did. All I did was to use two pots (to similate a double boiler) one filled with bioling water. Add the half and half to the top pot and begin stirring. Once it reached 180 degrees I turned off the heat and added 1/4 tsp of the tartaric acid and stirred while the mixture stayed above the hot water. The clumbing began and i let it set another minute while I readied the double lining of the cheese cloth into a strainer (leave enough to fold over top) with a pot under it to catch the whey. Pour the somewhat lumpy (it will still have some liquid in it)mixture into the cheesecloth and so will begin the drainage. I normally get about 2 cups or more of whey out of each batch. Leave the cheese mix out folding some of the cloth over it to keep anything from falling in. After about an hour, pour out the whey in the pot and place the cheese within the cheesecloth in the refrigerator over night. Just so you know the tartaric acid that comes in one kit is more than enough to make many many batches. Thanks!
You can not imagine how delighted I was to find this kit. I want to tell you how thrilled I am to now be making my own Mascarpone... it is just like I remembered it to be from my youth. Thank you so much for providing great service and a wonderful product. My family is waiting for desert! Thanks again and God bless.

I just received this kit and have not tried it yet, however, I am thrilled to be able to attempt Tira Misu for the first time! I'm not really a desert person, but Tira Misu is absolutely my favorite! Wish me luck! :-)

I just have to tell you how pleased I am with the mascarpone cheese kit. I just made my first tiramisu using my homemade mascarpone. My husband is so excited! I am from New York originally but I live in the Midwest now and certain things are impossible to find. This just made me a whole lot happier. Thanks again.
