My husband brought home a ton of milk the other night so after straining it all through a towel into various mason jars I decided to try my hand at making cheese the next day.
We made our cheese with raw milk from our cow and some from one of our goats.
What you need:
1 gallon of milk
2 large lemons
A pinch of non-iodized salt. (I used sea salt)
The first thing I did was find something that held a gallon of milk and I poured all the milk into it until I had a gallon.
I poured the milk into a large pot to boil and added a pinch of salt.
Make sure to occasionally stir your milk and once the little bubbles start to form around the outside, turn off the heat and add the lemon juice.
Set a stainless steel bowl under a knob on one of your kitchen cupboards and set your colander on top. Put your dish towel over the colander and start to ladle the cheese curds and whey into the towel.
Store your cheese in the fridge. You can make all sorts of combinations of herbs and jams with your cheese to make a delicious spread for a party. I’m looking forward to trying a bunch of different ideas.
