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.

Strain

02

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.

Squeeze

04

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.

Form
