Have you ever tried to make cheese? I know I have. One of the hardest parts of making cheese is finding the ingredients. This is probably because I can not find one store that stocks freaking rennet.
Rennet is extracted from the stomach of certain animals. (Yuck.) Vegetarians use a substitute made out of plant extract. But for regular cheese, apparently Trader Joe’s doesn’t want something that says: “Yummy Yummy Pig Extract” – wait, then why do they stock lard? Guess there’s only one answer for that: Paula Deen.
