“If you need cottage cheese in a hurry, this will work in a pinch. Enjoy!”
3 cups

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat milk to a low boil in a small saucepan, stirring so it doesn't stick to the bottom. Using a thermometer, position it so that is it touching the milk but not the pan. Heat the milk up to 120 degrees.
  2. When it reaches that temperature, turn off the heat. Add the vinegar. Let sit for a half hour.
  3. Put a cheesecloth in a colander and pour the mixture out into it. Let the green liquid drain away for about 3 minutes. Wrap the cottage cheese in the cheesecloth and run under cool tap water for about 3 more minutes. While you do this, knead the cheese with your fingers.
  4. You have made cottage cheese!
