DIRECTIONS

  • Beat all ingredients well.
  • Pour into a large saucepan and cook very slowly over low heat (stirring often) until it looks kind of like cottage cheese and liquid/curds start to separate.
  • Pour the mixture into a round colander or a strainer lined with cheese cloth and form into a ball.

  • Chill at least 8-10 hours or overnight.
