Recipe's preparation

    directions
  1. Place raw milk in bowl, heat 5 mins/ 37oC/sp1.

  2. When heated tip citric acid solution throught MC.

  3. Heat again 5 mins/37oC/ sp1, then add rennet soloution through MC.

  4. Stir 2 mins / sp1. Leave to set in bowl for at least 5 mins.

  5. The curd should look like set custard. if not leave for a few more minutes.

  6. Heat for 5 mins / 37oC / sp2.

  7. then stir 4 mins/ sp 2 ( the cheese becomes firmer at this point)

  8. Scoop out the curds (I use a nut bag to strain the curds). Squeeze out as much whey as possible.

  9. Microwave the curds for 1 min on high. Drain off access whey. Gentle fold the cheese over and over, use your spatula.

  10. microwave again 2 more times for 30 seconds, draining the whey off everytime and knead. Add salt after second heating.

  11. continune to knead until the cheese is smooth and elastic. If the curds break they need to be reheated.

  12. When it is smooth and shiny roll in a large ball, eat immediatley or place in ice water to cool rapidly and place in the fridge for later use.

    my husband loves it... my hands didn't I am going to try using the knead function in the Closed lid next time...

    although step 5 it didn't look like custard so I left it another 5 mins and it still had the whey sitting on top so I proceeded to the next steps.

    It doens't matter that it isn't pasteurized as the milk is heated many times, with is enough to kill of any bacteria tmrc_emoticons.)
