Making Hard Cheese is fun and easy, and most hard cheeses are made with these simple steps;

  1. Milk is warmed
  2. Starter culture and rennet are added
  3. The milk coagulates into a single curd
  4. The curd is cut and stirred to drain off whey
  5. The curd is sometimes heated and/or pressed, to remove even more whey
  6. The curd is moulded and shaped into a cheese, salting takes place before or after this process
  7. The cheese is matured or aged under controlled conditions
