DIRECTIONS

  • Put the milk over low heat, and bring to scald point (150 degrees).
  • Remove from heat.
  • Stir in lemon juice, and the milk will curdle.
  • Let the mixture sit without refrigeration for 2-12 hours. This is the mellowing process, and it seems that the more patient you are, the mellower the cheese.
  • Place 2 thickenesses of cheesecloth in a strainer.
  • Place the strainer over a bowl.
  • Pour the mixture into the strainer, and allow the whey to drain several hours until the curd is dry.
  • Flavor as you choose. Mix with blue cheese, roquefort, peanut butter, honey, nuts, spices or eat plain.
