Buttermilk Cream Cheese for Breakfast

Cream cheese is a staple in our house, along with yogurt, kefir and ricotta.  This cream cheese is incredibly simple to make.  Mix milk, cream, buttermilk and a few drops of rennet together, then let them sit at room temp on the counter for 24 hours.  Strain the yogurt-like curd into a colander lined with fine cheese cloth or a thin clean dish towel overnight.  The next day you'll have a creamy, buttery spread for toast, pies, sandwiches, veggie and fruit dip, etc.  Make buttermilk cream cheese part of your dairy staples.

Liquid rennet is available at your local co-op or online.
