Mascarpone cheese

Create a variant


  • 1 litre fresh whipping cream
  • 1/4 tsp. tartaric acid (available from pharmacies and most grocers)

Recipe's preparation


    1. Place cream in TX bowl. Set time 10 min. temp 90C speed soft. 2. Mix tartaric acid with 1 Tbl cool sterile water. 3. As soon as the cream reaches 90C stop the heat, add tartaric acid, and continue to stir at speed 1 for 1 min. 4. Pour into a container and cover tightly to cool.5. Put in refrigerator over night [12 – 24 hours]6. Prepare strainer cloth by boiling for 1 minute and hanging to dry. Use fine cheesecloth doubled or muslin.7. Line a bowl with strainer cloth and pour in cooled cream mixture. 8. Gather corners and tie so the bag of cheese can hang and drain.9. Hang in fridge over a bowl to collect whey 12 to 24 hours.10. Put cheese into clean air tight container and keep refrigerated. Use immediately or within 2 weeks.




In cheese making cleanliness is of utmost importance. The easiest way to do this is put about 4 cm water in a stock pot load all the things you will use in and boil for 1 minute. If you are using the cheese soon ordinary cleaning is probably OK but if you expect to keep it sterile is the way.

You get about 60% cheese. These pictures were from 300ml cream and gave 180g cheese.

  • I have made this same recipe

    I have made this same recipe but sustituting UHT full cream milk for the cream. The results is similar to cream cheese. Not as high a percentage return but very useful as a spread or similar.
