Categories     Appetizer

Total Time 15 minutes

Prep Time 15 minutes

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 4

one lt. or 34oz of whole fat milk (I used 3.5% fat)
one cup of buttermilk
2 teaspoons of fresh squeeze lemon juice (extra if needed)
salt to taste

Steps:

  • In a large pot heat the milk under medium heat. Allow the first bubbles to form prior to boiling – do not bring to a boil. The temperature should be warm but not hot that sticking a finger in the mild will burn you. Turn the heat off.
  • Gently pour and stir in the buttermilk. Next stir in the fresh lemon juice. Keep stirring until curds begin to form. If no curds form after a couple of minutes you will need to add more lemon juice. Cover and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  • Place a colander with cheese cloth over a large container to catch the whey. Pour all of the pot contents into the lined colander. BE CAREFUL the liquid is hot. Gather all sides and tie over a wooden spoon or just twist. Remove the colander and place the gathered cloth over a deep container. You don’t want the curds to touch the liquid, it needs to drain off. Leave draining for 30 minutes and tightening the cloth from time to time.
  • Once drained untie the cloth and place the cheese into a large container. Salt and season as desired while working the salt into the cheese. Gather the cheese and place in a container to mould and cover. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour, until chilled or overnight.
