Comments on this Recipe

I loved the idea of home made cheese, but never was able to purchase cheese cloth. This was an amazing way of flovoring your own cheese without the process becoming so long. I highly reccomend this recipe, its an expecially good way to get kids involved, they seem to have a blast sqeezing the bag!
