Farmers Cheese

March 27, 2011

I little while ago I became interested in making cheese and yogurt. Yogurt is fairly easy to make and I finally found a cheese recipe that is easy and delicious. This was a recipe for something  similar to ricotta cheese but since I did not want to add the extra cream, it came out a bit drier and closer to farmers cheese.

Farmers Cheese

You can increase the recipe very easily. I only made a small portion to try it out.

2 cups 2% milk

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice (@ 1/2 lemon) or you  can use 1/2-1 tbsp white vinegar

or for larger amount

1/2 gallon milk

2 tbsp lemon juice (@ 1 lemon) or use 1-2 tbsp white vinegar

You want to have cheese cloth on hand and a strainer.

Directions

Set up colander over a bowl or pot and line with cheese cloth.

Heat the milk on low/medium heat in large pot. Make sure the pot is large enough since the milk has a tendency to overflow. Once milk is boiling add the lemon juice to curdle the milk.

After adding lemon juice allow to boil for 1-2 minutes more and then pour into  cheese cloth colander.

Allow to drain for @ 1 hour(I only did 10-15 minutes since it was a very small quantity). Then it is complete and ready to eat.

It made about 1/2 cup of cheese.

You can make any amount you want, you can also add salt to flavor.

Enjoy!
