It takes just 4 easy steps: pour, drain, flavour, serve!
The draining time will determine the consistency of the cheese:
A few hours for a cheese dip
Overnight for a creamy cheese
1-2 days for a semi-hard cheese
The 848ml Kefirko Cheese Maker Kit can make 200-300g of creamy cheese, and the 1,400ml Kefirko Cheese Maker Kit, 400-500g.
"I tried the Kefirko Cheese Maker and I am convinced that it’s extremely easy to use.
I used to take coffee filters or several layers of cheesecloth spread on a strainer. But either it was flowing from the top, it took too long to drain, or it drained too quickly and I lost a lot of kefir.
All you have to do is put the sieve on the glass jar, then pour your fermented kefir. Then wait for it to drain. My favourite recipe: add salt, pepper, garlic and chives."
-Marie-Claire Frédéric, author and journalist of "Ni Cru Ni Cuit"
