Easy and Fun Recipe: Homemade Cottage Cheese

Posted Monday, February 24, 2014

My daughter recently watched a television program about making cottage cheese and she became very interested in wanting to make her own. A few minutes on the internet and we found dozens of recipes and how- to's.  The recipe we followed was from Val Harrison at Allotment.org.uk. I was curious and hesitant to try the cottage cheese but I must say it tasted good!

Here's what you need:                                            
2 pints of skimmed or semi-skimmed milk.               
2 tablespoons of lemon or white vinegar. (we used lemon)
Pinch of salt
wooden spoon
sift or sieve

Here's what you need to do: 
  • Pour the milk into the sauce pan and heat until hot but not boiling.
  • Stir occasionally and cool down for a few minutes
  • Add 2 tablespoons of lemon or white vinegar
  • Stir and watch the milk separate into curds and whey
  • After cooling put the mixture into your sifter to catch the curds
  • Discard the whey
  • Transfer the curds into a small bowl and add a pinch of salt
