Beyond Gourmet 100-percent lint-free Unbleached Cotton Cheesecloth is an invaluable addition to kitchen supplies for cooking, roasting, draining, straining, and sieving. It filters out seeds, skins, fibrous bulk and lumps for silky-smooth sauces, pastes, purees, gravies, and cream soups, and clear broth, stock, syrups and jellies. Perfect addition to canning supplies, too. Easy to use, simply line a strainer or colander with cheesecloth, place a catch bowl underneath, and pour in the item to be strained. Use multiple layers to trap even smaller bits. An essential of cheese making supplies, it captures dairy solids and allows whey to drain for a firmer homemade cheese. It promotes air circulation to keep cheese mold free as it ages. Strain liquids from homemade yogurt for a thicker Greek yogurt. Wrap cheesecloth around herbs and spices as a sachet or bouquet garni that’s easily removed from soups, stews and stocks, make an herb infuser to flavor oil and vinegar, fill with mulling spices for mulled cider, add pickling spices to a brine recipe for pickles, sauerkraut and other cabbage recipes, steep loose tea leaves, catch seeds and pulp when juicing lemons, or strain bits from homemade almond milk. For juicy, flavorful oven roasted poultry, soak the cheesecloth in a mixture of melted butter and wine, or cider, and drape it over top to slow baste roasted turkey. A must-have for home brewing supplies, tie up hops and whole grains in cheesecloth, as a steeping bag, to contain and easily remove them without having to filter out husks from a homebrew craft beer. A helpful addition to fermenting supplies, it allows ample airflow for making kefir and other probiotic and fermented foods, or kombucha and other fermented tea, and protects food from debris and bugs during the fermentation process. Made from 100-percent lint-free cotton, Beyond Gourmet’s Cheesecloth is washable and reusable. Simply rinse out debris, hand or machine wash in hot water, use a cold rinse, and hang to air dry.
