    Made today - wish I'd known before how simple and fabulous this recipe is! There's been a shortage of cottage cheese here in Nsw and I no longer have to miss out. Did I mention how much cheaper it is to make? One happy lady here.

    Submitted by Jandy1314 on 18. June 2016 - 17:26.

    Hi just wondering if you found this was more like ricotta or just like cottage cheese? I made a batch today but used full cream milk. Maybe I should try the skim and apple cider vinegar ?

  • I used light long life milk

    Submitted by Cissa83 on 12. May 2016 - 08:33.

    I used light long life milk and it turned out great! I do like mine a bit saltier, so will try adding more salt next time. Made 280g cottage cheese, which was a perfect amount for a recipe I was making.

  • I think I got too much liquid

    Submitted by thefroggirloz on 17. June 2015 - 16:10.

    I think I got too much liquid out of mine, it was a bit dry & tasteless, so I think I rinsed it too much too. I also used full cream milk, not sure if that was the difference. Will give it another try not rinsing much if at all & not squeezing the whey out much.

  • Amazing!!! If like me you are

    Submitted by BakingMad on 25. March 2015 - 01:49.

    Amazing!!! If like me you are trying to eat more protein then cottage cheese is definitely for you. I made it the other day using traditional method which took me two days! I was amazed that I could make it in TM in such short time! The quality is amazing too. I used skimmed milk and cider vinegar as that was all I had to hand and it came out lovely and moist. What's more I managed to get 370g of cottage cheese out of two litres of milk! Superb!!!

    Submitted by Mscot87 on 19. March 2015 - 02:25.

    I tries this tonight - so easy!! It only makes a tiny bit though... Could you use full cream milk to increase the end result? I added some cream and it was delicious. NEVER BUYING COTTAGE CHEESE AGAIN!!

    Submitted by sleepingd on 2. September 2014 - 19:01.

    It worked perfectly. This is my first attempt at making cheese using TMX and I am absolutely delighted, it couldn't be easier. I used lite milk as I didn't have any skim and I didn't encounter any problems. Thank you for this great recipe!
