This kit contains all the ingredients you need to make fresh Scottish Crowdie in your own kitchen with no fancy equipment. It's so straightforward and easy to do. You'll be surprised at how quickly you could be sitting down to eat your own freshly made, yummy cheese. All you need to add is milk.

The process of making Scottish Crowdie only takes around an hour from start to finish. Each kit makes 12 batches and each batch is around 900g.
Said to be Scotland’s most ancient cheese, Crowdie dates back as far as Viking and Pictish times when it was made by every crofter in the Highlands of Scotland.
The more traditional method for making Crowdie in those days would be to slowly warm a bucket of milk (straight from the cow) by the fire until it soured and curdled. We think you might enjoy our method instead!
The cheese was often eaten on oatcakes before a Ceilidh as it was said to alleviate the effects of whisky drinking!
This kit would make a great gift for anyone who enjoys food and appeals to all age ranges. Most people don't know how easy and quick it is to make cheese so the kit comes as an excellent surprise!
