What is it?

Rennet is an enzyme essential to cheesemaking. It sets, or curdles, the milk so that the curds separate out from the whey. Traditionally, rennet comes from the stomach of a calf, lamb, or goat, but today there are vegetarian versions available. All have the same coagulating ability

How to choose:

Rennet is sold in liquid or tablet form, and can be ordered online at www.cheesemaking.com or www.thecheesemaker.com.

How to store:

Rennet must be kept refrigerated or it will lose its potency.
