We get raw, grass-fed milk through a herd-share program with a local farmer. Every week I make yogurt and kefir, which uses up most of our gallon of milk. Every now and then, though, we have a little more milk than we can use, so I’ve been reading about making cheese – something simple, like mozzarella or ricotta.
Yesterday I came across the website www.thekitchn.com that had a recipe and tutorial on making “Queso Fresco” or “Fresh Cheese.” It looked so simple and quick that I decided to try it. I made mine into Garlic-Dill Cheese Curds because I’ve always liked cheese curds and think the “squeaky” feel is kind of fun to eat! J It was easy and turned out really tasty.
