This makes a dreamy goat cheese. It's very popular around here and doesn't last at all! I highly recommend this culture for making a delicious goat cheese. Looking forward to trying it for other cheeses in the future. (Posted on 7/12/2013)
I have found Ricki Carroll's book to be an indispensible resource for my cheese making efforts. I tried out many recipes for both aged and fresh cheeses. For the fresh cheeses, I used several types of chevre starters, and fromage blanc with success. In Ricki's book, she has a "Note:" that says "Flora Danica is an excellent fresh goat cheese starter for any of the soft cheese recipes...". So I tried out the Flora Danica - and subsequently tossed out all of my other soft cheese starters! Why would I want to spend time and milk making something less tasty than the Flora Danica?? It is amazingly delicious! (Posted on 11/28/2013)
These cultures made the perfect sour cream. I bought this particular product because I'm able to make so many different things with it. My first was sour cream. Quick and easy and got 4 pint jars from 1 quart of whipping cream. I added an 1/8 teaspoon of culture and then 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt when complete. Can't wait to try some other things with this product! :) (Posted on 6/12/2014)
I've been using this culture to make my cream cheese for the last 9 months. The culture seems very dependable when used per the recipe here, although I often extend the incubation to 24 hours. I use 3/4 whole milk and 1/4 cream and the result is a pleasantly mild cream cheese with a light acidity and slightly buttery flavor. Indispensable, I never buy cream cheese anymore.

Thanks for making this available,I do wish you would send instructions with it and it did not arrive in a cold insulated package even though it was at the the hieght of a hot summer. I was afraid it could be killed but those little grains are amazing! I put 1/8 th teaspoon into 2 quarts of raw cream in a large glass bowl,stir lightly several hours later then each time I peek under the cloth I can tell it is cultering my cream into a thick,flavorful future butter. After 24 hours of counter cultering I put it into the fridge for a good chilling then proceed to make butter in the blender. YUM!
Note from CFH: Flora Danica is used to culture a variety of different products. Recipes are available on our website. (Posted on 9/21/2014)
