I enjoy making cheese, yummy

Homemade cheese

Things you will need when making cheese.

8 egg
3 liter whole milk
1 liter buttermilk or sourcream
1-2 tsp salt
(a pinch of sugar)
Butter muslin or fine cheesecloth
perforated skimmer
cheesemould or strainer
saucepan 5 liters minimum

1. Put 3 liters whole milk into to saucepan. Bring the milk almost to the boil in a saucepan about, 80 degrees C, stirring continuously to prevent the milk from burning to the bottom.

    2. Break 8 eggs in a bowl and put the 1 liter of buttermilk or sourcream with the eggs.

    3. Beat the eggs slightly until the yolks and whites are blended, and mix with buttermilk. Add the salt and sugar. Pour the mixture into the hot milk in the saucepan. Now let the mixture heat up to 90 degrees, remember to stir. Do not let it boil.

    4. When it hits 90 switch off the stove and let the cheese mixture stay over the warm stove for about half an hour, until the curd and whey are separated.

    5. Cover a wooden/aluminium cheese mould or a strainer with a dampened cheesecloth. Place the curds with a skimmer onto the mould.

    6. Cover the curds with a cheesecloth and set a light weight on top of it ex. a small plate. (The heavier the weight the firmer the cheese.) Make sure you put something under the mould because it will be dropping whey in the fridge. Place the cheese in a cool place, let the whey drip overnight until the following day.

    Unmould the cheese to serve it.
    The excess whey can be used for bread or roll dough.

    1. Kiitos erinomaisesta ohjeesta! Meillä juuston teko kuuluu jouluperinteisiin, mutta miksei sitä voisi tehdä muulloinkin.
