1 gallon whole milk
¼ cup white vinegar
2 tbsp of water

Special equipment:
candy thermometer


  • In a large pot with a candy thermometer, slowly bring the milk to 180*
  • Mix the white vinegar and the water and add to the milk. Stir in slowly and keep on the heat for another 5 – 7 minutes, or until the curds and whey begin to separate.
  • Place a large colander, lined with cheesecloth over a bowl.
  • Using a fine mesh strainer, begin to gently skim the separated curds into the cheese cloth.
  • Put it in a plastic quart with holes in it – allow it to continue to drain, it will be firmer the longer it drains.
  • Serve and enjoy with grilled bread and Bee Local honey.
