    • I am living in Bangladesh at the moment, what one can buy in the cheese dept is quite limited, this has made curious on the possibility of learning how to make some cheeses at home. Question: Can ultra pasteurized milk, long lasting milk be used for making cheeses? Here we can only get that type of milk from Australia.
      Advise please, thanks!
    • UHT and UP milk have both been heated to too high a temp, and the curds won't pull together. You may be able to make ricotta or vinegar cheese with UHT milk, it would certainly be worth a try.
