Does anybody knows how this mold works, i like to use it to make a big fresh goatcheese.
This mold is used to make Saint Maure goat cheese, a soft cheese with a mold on the outside. The curds are not cut, but poured straight into the mold. Traditionally, a rye straw is inserted into the center to assist with removing the cheese from the mold after draining, and for handling during the ripening time.
For making other soft goat cheeses such as chevre, you may not need a mold. Simply drain through a cheesecloth and press into a log, rolling in plastic wrap to hold the shape. Or use a differently shaped mold such as our chevré mold.
Do instructions come with this mold? Is it sold as a kit with all I need to make this type of cheese? Thanks. Jose
This mold can be used with any soft cheese recipe. It isn't part of a kit and does not come with instructions but you could use it with any soft cheese kit which would come with instructions and recipes.
