Ingredients

2 quarts milk

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

Directions

  1. In a heavy-bottomed pot, slowly bring the milk and the lemon juice to 200 degrees F. Remove from heat and cover. Place in a spot where the temperature will remain uniform, we suggest an unheated oven.
  2. After 6 hours, strain the curds and whey through cheesecloth. Tie the corners of the cloth to form a bag and hang it to drain overnight.
