OK, with the son living here again, all 5'11 and 145 pounds of him being a walking disposal, I am ready to try my hand at making mozarella and ricotta cheese. Milk is absurdly cheap and should stay that way for awhile.

But I can't seem to find any Rennet without ording it on line.

Anyone know if any of the local stores sell Rennet ?

I do not know, and I do not know what Rennet is. BUT - I always seem to find off the wall, hard to find stuff at Harry's in Marietta on Roswell Road. Have you called them?

Thanks!

If they don't have it, my only other suggestions would be Fresh Market on Peachtree (near Piedmont Hospital) and the DeKalb Farmers Market.

I will let you know after I find some rennet.

The rennet is an enzyme which causes the milk to curdle. As I understand it, several hours after adding the rennet to the milk, you pour of the whey [basically water], and what remains is cheese.

There's also a Fresh Market on Johnson Ferry Road.....going north on 120 towards Roswell, turn right onto Johnson Ferry and it's about a mile on the right.....you go past Trader Joe's, and it's way before you get to Lower Roswell. Both fantastic stores. Good luck~
