If you are a cheese lover this is the right place for you. If you are sick of store bought cheese and want to experiment and make one of your own, we have the solution.
Homemade cheese is absolute extravagant and it is extremely beneficial and delicious. The process is often looked as very complicated but the truth is that it is quite easy and it can bring a good amount of cheese.
Before starting this cheese making process you need to get all of the ingredients ready. This is what you will need.
- 1 liter of pasteurized milk
- 45 ml of freshly squeezed lemon juice
- a pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons of cream
- 100 cc of plain yogurt
- pepper, oregano, salt (optional and to taste)
Pour the milk in a stainless steel pot and bring it to a boil, then remove it from the heat, cover the pot and leave it to cool down for 20 minutes.
Now, add the lemon juice, cream and yogurt and leave it for 10 minutes, then put the mixture on medium heat and cook it until the milk begins to cut – you will notice this by seeing the lumps of cream separating from the liquid whey.
At this point, add your spices and mix well, then take out the excess serum with a tablespoon and strain the mixture through a colander and gauze. Add other flavors if you want in the end.
Once you have finished straining, you should get a nice paste which you can shape with your hands. Just make the shape you want, then put your cheese in a plastic container in the fridge. Leave it for a day and enjoy your own homemade cheese.
