Do you have milk that you think is past the use by date or starting to be sour? Don’t throw it away. Make cheese! One gallon of milk will produce about one pound of cheese.

Directions for Farmstead Cheese

1. Bring milk up to 180 to 190 degrees (the older the milk, the lower the needed temp). Use a thermometer.

2. Keep stirring to avoid sticking and getting a film on the top. 

3.To test if it is the right temperature, using a big spoon, take out a little of the milk and add a little sour (lemon juice or vinegar) to see if it curdles in the spoon.
