    I am dying to try this recipe. Can I use full fat UHT goats milk? Battling to find fresh goats milk in Perth.

    Sooo easy and tasty (particularly compared to making  Halloumi which has many more processes and takes much more time).

  • Excellent! I only realised

    Submitted by krock on 23. April 2016 - 10:42.

    Excellent! I only realised after I started cooking that I didn't have a cloth to use, so I used a tea towel instead. I had to drain it overnight but it still turned out well. I only used half the salt and it was salty enough for me. Next time I would add more lemon.

    Enjoying making this cheese, I leave it for 5 min or more and strain it for about 5 min to make it spreadable on biscuits with 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Delicious. 1ltre makes just over 200g this way. Thank you for the recipe

    Submitted by ronellem on 22. December 2015 - 13:39.

    So easy and a great success.

    TIP. Depending on permeability of draining cloth, do not drain longer than 1 minute before checking moistness.

    Keep drained whey to adjust moisture.

  • This is super easy.  Mine

    Submitted by Siona72 on 6. August 2015 - 12:14.

    This is super easy.  Mine turned out more like a ricotta cheese, maybe drained too long.  It also doesn't have the 'tang' that are with commercial cheeses....would adding more lemon provide this??

    Looking forward to trying my next batch with some herbs.

    Thank you

  • I have used this recipe

    Submitted by ronellem on 1. November 2014 - 20:57.

    I have used this recipe several times with great success.This time, I tried doubling the recipe; it worked well to stay to the same time as per instructions for 1 L. Draining took only about 1 minute. I suppose the cloth one uses determines the time.

    I reduced salt to  2.5 ml salt per 1L and used no oil on top. Instead, small containers covered with cling wrap works well to  freeze for later use.

  • Great recipe. 1L of milk

    Submitted by MT75 on 14. April 2014 - 18:29.

    Great recipe. 1L of milk yielded 130g which I was pretty happy with. Also noted the price of the milk after reading previous comments. Paul's Goats milk is $4.80 a Litre so pretty happy to get that much fresh goats cheese for $4.80 and a little effort. Also, my chux wasn't terribly soiled and after putting it through the wash with the tea-towels, it's prefectly fine.  Only leasson learned is that I used 1/2 a tsp of salt and it was a bit too salty... I guess it all depends what kind of salt you use.  Also, once I drizzled olive oil ontop, it made it a little milder.thank you for sharing a great simple recipe tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Delicious and easy to make! I

    Submitted by ronellem on 12. April 2014 - 17:32.

    Delicious and easy to make! I did not have a chux or muslin cloth, so used a double layered, very fine, laundry bag instead.

    The whey should not be discarded as it is quite healthy. I poured mine back into my goat's milk bottle to use in porridge, smoothies and baking.

  • I buy fresh goats milk from

    Submitted by Annieooby on 9. February 2014 - 09:40.

    I buy fresh goats milk from Safeway at $4 dollars something a litre and long-life goats milk for about the same.  I wash out the muslin by hand twice and dry between washes so any remaining cheese can be shaken out before the second wash.  I also pour boiling water over it before each use.  Sounds like a bit of a fiddle, but really only a quick wash.  You can also use Chux cloths for straining which would be cheaper if you want to throw them out.  I love being able to make my own, and I'm sure it works out cheaper than buying it.

  • Five stars for the recipe...

    Submitted by Aussiewiz on 8. February 2014 - 22:09.

    Five stars for the recipe... but read on.

    I would love to replicate the commercial goats cheese so was happy to discover this recipe.

    it worked (If you don't have or don't like the lemon - you can use vinegar.)

    it does taste very goat like - a lot stronger that most I have tried... so I am not sure if you can dull it down with cows? 

    Personally I quite like it tmrc_emoticons.)

    my goats milk was $7 for the litre and then a dollar or less for the muslin.

    The one litre produced half a cup of cheese. I threw out the muslin as I felt it  was not ever going to be clean enough to use again.

    so great recipe but unless I can half the cost of my milk...I probably won't bother making it again.

  • Really easy and delicious.

    Submitted by mirandaharris6 on 14. September 2013 - 11:51.

    Really easy and delicious. However my fetta had a distinctive lemon taste which was nice on a salad but didn't suit the other meals I used it in. Any suggestions? Should I wash the cheese to get rid of the lemon flavour or could you use some vinegar instead of lemon juice? Thank you.
