I attempted my first ever Cottage cheese the other day. It is really tasty and easy to make, and funnily enough is a lot like a failed batch of yogurt I had once!
Warm 600ml milk to luke warm, stirring in 3T milk powder. Once warm, remove from heat and add 1t rennet. Leave for about 15min to solidify.
Using a sharp knife cut cheese into cubes, releasing the whey. Place in sieve with cloth or chux style cloth. Leave it to drain over a bowl for at least 2 hours, or longer if you want it drier.
Refrigerate and enjoy.
