Cottage Cheese 101

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.
