Any idea where I can get muslin / cheesecloth in the Cambridge / Hamilton area, so I can have a go at making paneer etc??? :confused:

Most fabric shops have it, as it is still used for baby cloths & drapes for bassinets.
I bought 2 mtrs last week at our local bargain fabrics place.
He smiled when I asked for old fashioned butter muslin----but what the heck; that is what it is to me.

I'd be trying David's Emporium on Hood St - they have everything!

Gosh Tigger is that Davids Emporium still there ? I used to love that shop . When we lived in the Naki and hubby used to go to Hamilton for work trips I would go with him and spend ages in that shop while waiting for him at the nearby court house . Something for everyone in their . Do they still have those sweets from unheard of countries ? And as you say the fabric section is a starter for any one looking for unusual items.

Do you have a PGG Wrighton, CRT or other farm shop? I've bought mutton cloth from PGG before, I think it's the same sort of thing (I hung a prosciuto (sp?)) in it. And only a few bucks for quite a big bit.

Just back from town... Mitre 10, Wrightsons and Bin Inn all offered me the same thing. It actually says 'Stockinette Roll' on it...?? (The Wrightsons one also said Mutton Cloth) Is that the right stuff??? :confused: I thought it would be more fabric-like, but this is quite stretchy... :confused:

no, that is definitely not the same thing, stockinette is used as polishing cloths and rags, muslin is quite different, it is woven, not knitted. I would doubt that mitre 10 would stock muslin.

I'm totally baffled :(

Have just done a search on cheese making, and checked what products these people sell. Found this www.cheesemaker.co.nz/other-supplies-xidg15049.html - but their description says Cheese cloth/Stockinette, so I'm none the wiser!! [:0]:(:(

Anyone else know?? :confused:[:I]

Muslin is a loosely woven cotton cloth with quite fine threads - its often used for baby face cloths etc. Stockinette as at Mitre 10 is quite thick and stretchy as you say but would still strain things. Maybe you need to e-mail the cheesemaker website and ask. After all if they mean the same stuff, it must be okay for cheese.

I've never made paneer, so don't know what it is.

Are you straining curds and whey for a type of cheese? I would imagine then that cheese cloth / stockinette / mutton cloth (what I call the same thing) will be just fine. It is, I imagine, cheaper than muslin and can be reused.

Dave (Artisan Cheese) - the website you've given above - uses cheese cloth for the mascapone type cheese he makes in class. It is more than adequate for hanging the curds and whey overnight from a broomstick over a basin.

I HTH.
