    1. 1
      Heat milk to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring frequently.

      Line larger colander with cheesecloth or muslin; place in sink. Pour curds and whey mixture into lined colander. Lift edges of cloth; swirl to remove excess liquid. Completely wrap curds in cloth; return to colander. Place large jar or similar filled with water on curds to press them down. Lease undisturbed for 5 to 6 hours.
    4. 4
      Remove weight and remove cheese to cutting board; discard cheesecloth. Cut cheese into 1/2 inch cubes. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 12 hours.

      This was so easy, and so much fun! I've never made my own cheese before, and the flavor of this stuff was terrific. I learned the hard way, though, not to use skim milk (all I had)--2 pints milk only yielded about 1/2 c cheese. Disappointing, yes, but my own dumb fault for trying to bleed a turnip LOL! Also, I used lemon juice in lieu of vinegar and it worked fine. Thanks for posting this--it is going to be fun to use in recipes and even to flavor for eating on its own!
