Sourdough & Cheesemaking
South Coast Research & Extension Center

Sponsor: Orange County

On Thursday, October 13, 2022 and on Saturday, October 15, 2022, UCCE Master Food Preservers of Orange County will share with you two techniques: the "care and feeding" of a sourdough starter and cheesemaking. Sourdough bread is created by fermenting flour to be used in making your own homemade bread and many other baked goods. Each participant will go home with a new sourdough starter, directions to keep the starter going, and lots of recipes for muffins, hotcakes, cookies, pizza crusts and of course, bread. We will also be making Queso Fresco, a Mexican cheese with a fresh, milky, salty-sour taste. This cheese is made by curdling hot milk with acid and the enzyme rennet to develop the cheese curds.
