DIRECTIONS

  • Boil water in a large pot, then add milk.
  • Bring to a full foaming boil, stirring to prevent sticking.
  • Lower heat, the add lemon juice stirring constantly.
  • Soft curds should appear in 10-15 seconds, separating from the light yellow, clear whey.
  • Remove from heat and allow to stand 5-6 minutes.
  • Line a colander with finely woven tea towels (not cheesecloth!).
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove the curds from the pot and into the towel-lined colander. Use fine strainer to get the smallest remainders.
  • Gather the corners of the towels and twist into a tight ball.
  • Put a weight (heavy pan?) on top of the ball and let it rest 10 minutes.
  • Unwrap and use in recipe or wrap in plastic and refrigerate.
