What’s better than cheese?? Nothing! This is cheese making class 101. Hands down the easiest cheese you will make. And oh so simple. Three ingredients and some cheesecloth. Go try it!
Makes 1 ½ cups.
8 cups whole milk
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Line colander with 4 layers of cheesecloth; set in sink. Bring milk and salt to simmer in heavy large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in lemon juice.
Let simmer until curds form, 1-2 minutes. Using a finely slotted spoon, scoop curds from pan and transfer to the colander.
Let drain 1 minute (curds will be a little wet). Transfer curds to medium bowl. Cover and chill until cold, about 3 hours.
Serve with honey on toast for breakfast, use in soufflés, or spread on bruschetta with tomatoes and basil!
