Total time
Making cheese at home is pretty easy and very satisfying. This gives a soft goats cheese, a fresh or cottage cheese, that will keep for a week or so in the fridge.
Recipe type: Cheese
Cuisine: British
  • 1 litre goats milk (as high in fat as you can find)
  • ⅓ cup lemon juice
  1. Heat the milk to 80-82C.
  2. Pour in the lemon juice and stir thoroughly.
  3. Leave for ten minutes.
  4. Pour into a colander lined (thickly) with cheese cloth, or an old tea towel.
  5. When most of the whey has drained, wrap the curds in the cloth, and hang the parcel from the tap, or a spoon, over a bowl for draining.
  6. Leave for another 1.5 hours.
  7. Open the cloth parcel and put the cheese into a bowl with about 0.5 teaspoon sea salt.
  8. Pack in ramekins (or similar) and keep in the fridge.
