ISO: Cheese cloth

loodle Apr 13, 2010 11:55 AM

I've been trying to find cheese cloth (or it's alternative) but haven't had much luck. I'm attempting to make paneer tomorrow. Does anybody know where I would be able to find some without straying outside of Scarborough?

      I find it in Supermarkets, Dollar Stores, but I would add if anyone can also help with quantity and price as it seems expensive for so little!

        Bigger Loblaws usually carry it in their cookware or cleaning goods sections. Failing that, Rona/Home Depot usually have it in their paint depts. Pricey? Usually a buck or so for a package.

          Dollar stores should be the cheapest, but most fabric shops would sell it for $1.19 per yd. 42" wide

            I use cheesecloth when I cook my turkey, and I always pick it up at my local No Frills. It's usually in a hanging plastic bag, about a foot long and five inches wide. Less than $2, IIRC.

              Not sure if it's food grade but I saw it at Rona the other day. That's the hardware store.

              I bought some from at Walmart at Dufferin while ago. You can check out the kitchen store in St. Lawrence Market too. They pretty much have everything.
