How to make cheese at home?

Ingredients

8 cups or 2 L milk

1/3 cup apple cider

Instructions

IMPORTANT: What kind of milk you are using is very important.

Don’t use ultra-pasteurized milk because it was so modified that will not produce or form curds.

If you can please use raw milk. (which is more expensive)

Also, you can use milk 3% from the store. (it will work)

So, let’s go back to the process of making cheese.

Pour 2 liters of milk into pot and heat until boils. (stir in order to prevent burning)

When milk boils, turn heat on low and add 1/3 cup of apple cider. Keep stirring.

The mixture will separate into curds and greenish liquid called whey.

If separation doesn’t occur, add more apple cider. (don’t be shy)

Then remove from heat and pour them through a strainer.

Rinse the curds with cold water.

Add salt if you want to use. (add to your taste. You can start with 1 tsp)

After you add the salt, your next step is to wrap the cheese in cheesecloth.

Put something heavy on top of your cheese. ( I used jar of honey). Let it sit for 1 hour.

After one hour transfer your healthy, homemade, delicious cheese to the fridge.

And you are done. Yes, you just made your cheese.
