Chris, will you call Cub foods and ask if they have rennet (sometimes
called rennin)? I've been in 15 so-called health food stores -- they never
heard of it. Then they look it up on some website or other which says
"available in health food stores." The best hint I got was from a man
running a health food store who said his mother makes cottage cheese with
lime juice. I did that, but it takes a lot of lime and the hand squeezing
takes forever... So far I achieved one great batch, one terrible batch --
but, on the bright side, I get to use my old darkroom dip and dunk
fahrenheit-metric mercury thermometer. (I also lost 18 pounds, but I don't
know if there's a connection.)
