How to prepare fresh cheese with 1 liter of milk, 1 yogurt and half a lemon

Although supermarkets are full of cheeses of all kinds, each better than the last, it is always useful to know that it is possible to prepare excellent  fresh cheese  at home, completely natural and very tasty.

To  prepare cream cheese,  you need very few ingredients: milk, yogurt and lemon. The result will be an excellent cheese, which you can use for salads, spread on bread or use for other preparations.

Ingredients: 1 liter of fresh whole milk, 1 natural yogurt, the juice of half a lemon, 1 cotton gauze, a bowl and a mold approximately 12 cm in diameter.

Heat the milk to 90 degrees for about 15 minutes. Add the yogurt and lemon juice and mix well.

Set the oven to 90 degrees and pour all the mixture into the mold. Bake for 2 minutes, until the whey has separated and turned a yellow color.

Place the cheesecloth over the mold and, placing under the bowl, pour the contents of the mold directly onto the cheesecloth. The whey will fall into the bowl, while the rennet will remain on the cheesecloth.

Squeeze the gauze well to remove the serum. Pour the rennet back into the mold, and put a weight on top (a jar or a full bottle). Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Remove the mold from the refrigerator and remove the cheesecloth. You can add a little salt to the preparation. Transfer the cheese to another container and let it sit in the refrigerator for another 8 hours.
