      Corn on the Cob ~ Black Bean and Corn Salad Wrap-homemadecottagecheese1.jpgMaking your own cottage cheese is as easy as warming up milk! This simple recipe is a great way to use up milk that has soured.


      2 quarts very sour milk
      1 tsp. salt
      1 junket rennet tablet
      1/8 C. cream or half & half

      Heat the sour milk slowly until it reaches 100ºF on a digital thermometer. Remove from heat and add 1 junket rennet tablet that has been crushed. Stir well for 2 minutes until the rennet is completely dissolved.

      Cover and let set 4 hours.

      After 4 hours, the mixture will be soft set (much like yogurt) & quite jiggly. Using a knife or spatula cut the mixture diagonally 5 or 6 times, then do the same in the opposite direction.

      Sprinkle in the salt then set the pan over extremely low heat and cook, stirring very gently, to allow the curds to separate from the whey. This process takes just a couple minutes- do not overcook or the curds will be TOUGH & chewy.

      Drain thoroughly in a cloth bag or cheesecloth lined strainer over a clean bowl (to reserve the whey).

      Fold the cloth over the drained curds and place in the fridge for 1 hour to continue straining, stirring gently every 20 minutes or so.

      Finally, Spoon the cottage cheese from the cloth into a bowl and stir in the cream or half and half.

      Taste, add additional salt if necessary. Season with white pepper just prior to serving.

        I could use some more information: How many servings, and how large are the servings? Also, How much time to prepare this recipe (estimate)?

        I do love recipes like this. Many of the older people who used to make these things at home, are no longer here, and things like cheese making at home are pretty rare these days. A shame, because homemade anything is a much higher quality (freshness, taste, economical, and ingredient control). Thank you for such a wonderful site, with both awesome recipes and a wealth of other information. VERY HELPFUL!

      Hmmm...my interpretation was that it meant recipes for people with 'chewing' issues after some sort of surgery... I've asked for clarification.

      Re: Green Smoothie

      This is in the wrong category. "J.A.W" means that it's a mix where you Just Add Water.
