5 Flavoring Ideas

01 Mixed Herbs

02 Dried Minced Veggies

03 Maple Cinnamon Walnut

04 Garlic & Herb

05 Jalapeño & Cilantro

Heat milk


Heat the milk in a large pot over medium until it reaches 190 degrees F, add white vinegar, stir to combine, and allow to curdle.



Pour or ladle the contents of the pot into a cheesecloth-lined strainer placed over a bowl (to catch the whey).

Add flavorings


Gently mix in any desired flavorings or salt with a fork.



Gather the ends of the cheesecloth and give it a gentle twist to form a ball shape and squeeze out some, but not all additional whey.



Use 2 small plates to form your cheese into a 1-2" thick disk. Chill for an hour before serving.
