 Cottage-Cheese

This cottage cheese is easier and faster to make and relies on the addition of yogurt to provide the depth of flavor of traditional cottage cheese made without rennet. If you are in a hurry and plan to add herbs or flavorings to the finished cheese, then that may not be such a concern.

Time: 45 minutes to make 1-1/2 hours to culture. Yield: 1 lb (500 g) cottage cheese.

  • 2 quarts (2 liters) of Whole milk or skimmed milk
  • 1  Soft cheese starter culture sachet (we recommend Culture Cupboard®)
