Eggs & Cheese
Contributed by: Connie Stone
1 gallon pasteurized (not ultra-pasteurized) milk
1â�„4 cup starter such as lemon or lime juice or apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper
Bring temperature of milk to 120 degrees. Just as the milk gets frothy, pour in the 1â�„4 starter and stir until it curds up. Pour the curdled milk into cheese cloth or clean panty hose to strain it. Hang it to drain. The longer it drains, the drier the cheese will be.
Add milk to make cottage cheese; flavor cheese with peaches; or sprinkle it on salads like feta cheese.
