Step 1: Ingredients
For the cheese, you will need:
- Lemon Juice
- Optional: Seasoning: I used some basil. You can also add some salt or other herbs if you like.
Step 2: Tools
You will need:
- two pans
- a sieve
- a ladle
- a plate
- a dish-towel (If you use basil, it will probably become dirty)
Step 3: Fill the Pan
Pour the milk into the pan.
Step 4: Boil
Boil the milk. I recommend to set the fire on medium height.
Step 5: Lemon Juice!
Pour the lemon juice into the pan with milk.
Step 6: Stir It!
Stir the milk with the lemon juice with a wooden spoon.
Step 7: Clots Start to Form.
After a while, clots start to form on the surface. Now, it's important that you keep stirring. It's not grave, if the milk boils. If it boils, put the fire a little bit lower.
Step 8: More and Bigger Clots Start to Form
More clots start to form and the clots become bigger. The aqueous liquid becomes white-yellow and feculent.
Step 9: Drain
Place the sieve on top of the pan. Drain the clots and liquid in the sieve. The clots wil stay in the sieve, the feclent liquid will go through the sieve and drip into the pan.
Step 10: The Basil
Tear the basil in small pieces.
Step 11: Add Basil
Put the cheese on a dish-towel on a plate. Put some seasoning (basil) on the cheese.
Step 12: Knead
Knead the cheese in a dish-towel, so the dish-towel will absorb the water from the cheese.
Step 13: Eat It!
The cheese is now ready to eat. If you want, you can remove the basil from the cheese.
