In honor of National Cheese Lover's Day (Jan. 20), we wanted to revisit some of our favorite cheese recipes. It may sound complicated, but making your own cheese isn't that tricky and is definitely worth it. The end result will be fresher than anything you get at the store.
Start with an easy ricotta and work your way up to the difficult (but delicious) mozzarella. Or, if all of that sounds too complicated, we've also included a simpler recipe for queso dip so you can get your cheese fix by the chip.
Homemade ricotta doesn’t take much more time than an hour and doesn’t require any special ingredients or equipment. This is the perfect gateway cheese.
