How to Make Mascarpone With Kefir Grains (Recipe)

Discover how to make your own mascarpone at home, using milk kefir grains!

Mascarpone is a creamy, mild, and absolutely decadent Italian cheese. It is known for its starring role in the famous tiramisu, but it is so good that you could eat an entire bowl with a spoon!

It is usually made of two ingredients: cream and an acid, such as lemon juice.

In this recipe, we use kefir grains to turn the cream into a smooth cheese with a slightly tangy taste, but soft in the mouth. You must try it!

  • Pour the 35% cream into a glass container, add the milk kefir grains and mix thoroughly.
  • Cover with a cloth with a rubber band and let it ferment at room temperature for 24 hours.
  • Filter the mascarpone through the strainer to recover the kefir grains.
  • Put the cream into a Kefirko Cheese Maker or hang it in a fine muslin to drain for 12 hours. This step removes some of the whey, resulting in a thicker mascarpone.
  • Transfer the mascarpone to a glass container and refrigerate.
