I first got the idea of making my own cheese after watching an episode of "America's Test Kitchen" in which they simply boiled the milk and added vinegar. I had always thought it was expensive and complicated.
Well I went in search of a recipe and it turns out that yes it does take some odd ingredients to make for example a normal everyday cheddar.
But we'll go into that another time.
I did in fact find a recipe for a cheese called "Paneer" an Indian cheese which, like the above, uses heat and acid instead of aforementioned odd ingredients.
|My "Recipe Book" (Never mind the fact that it currently says "Pandora")|
The Process? Simple,
1. Put a liter of milk in a stainless steel pan.
3. Add either lemon juice or vinegar
4. Watch it curdle!
5. Strain and press
I plan on making much, much more of this!
