“This is an extremely easy cheese to make, perfect for a beginner.The taste is bland so I suggest marinating it cubed in herbed olive-oil(I add salt too).It's a great "science project" recipe to do with children because it's simple and quick.”
2 cups

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 quarts whole milk
  • 14 cup vinegar


  1. Heat the milk to 185, or close to boiling.
  2. Add vinegar slowly,while continuosly stirring. The milk will start to seperate into curds and whey.
  3. When fully separated, pour the mixture into a colander lined with cheesecloth.If you desire to keep the whey for other uses be sure to put a large bowl under colander.
  4. Tie the corners of the cheesecloth together and hang it where it can drip safely.
  5. When it stops dripping you can cube it and marinate it in olive oil,wine,soy sauce etc. Or just eat it plain!Enjoy!
