A Simple Cheese





This one is really easy to make and you can add your own touch, your own favorite flavors and herbs  to the mix.
I heat one gallon of milk to 175F degrees..



Stir in one cup of white vinegar...



Strain through cheesecloth..








I added salt to taste and about 2 tablespoons of butter...



I didn't use a cheese press. I just pressed it into a bowl, covered it and chilled overnight in the fridge...






Topped with a sweet, hot chile sauce...






I like this cheese, it's so easy to make and the variations are endless. You can add just about any of your favorite herbs or seasonings. Jalapenos, pickled peppers, scallions, garlic, etc..

It's not a good melting cheese but it's a great crumbling cheese.


Everything is going well here. The virus hasn't really been a factor in my life. The stores I frequent are still open and operating as usual. I live in the middle of nowhere so friends are still living live normally. The cattle still need tended, the pigs, chickens, etc., are thriving and the garden is doing great.

Hope everyone is healthy and happy and doing well!
Thanks for stopping by!

When I kept goats I'd make simple cheese, it was good. Speaking of good it's nice to see you back!
