I have finally received my cheese cloth through the post and bought a litre of goat milk. Now you can imagine where I am going with this, last weekend I made my own fresh goat cheese. And I feel very excited about it, probably too much for cheese but I have my reasons. Strangely enough (for me anyway) it is very easy to find fresh goat milk in London, but quite hard to find nice goat cheese that doesn't cost an arm on top of it. In France it's the contrary, but then we are the country of cheese.
Making fresh goat cheese is easy. You just need to be patient (which I am not) and take your time (part where I usually fail). I still managed to do it, so here we go.
- 1L of fresh whole goat milk
- 1tea spoon of salt
- 3 table spoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Cheese cloth
- Take the milk off the heat and add the lemon juice. Stir gently. You should see the milk split.
- Leave the pan to sit for 5 minutes.
