  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: German, Cheese

 Ingredients List

  • --------------------------OLD WORLD KITCHEN; LUARD--------------------------
  • 4 tb Yogurt; or wine vinegar, or
  • 5 tb Lemon juice
  • 2 qt Milk


You will need a saucepan, a bowl, and a sieve. If using yogurt, bring the
milk to a boil and then leave it to cool to finger temperature (100 F). Mix
with milk with the yogurt in a basin. Put in a warm place for 4 to 5 hours
to set as solid as yogurt.

If using vinegar or lemon juice, stir into the milk and bring it to a near
boil (200 F) in a bowl set in a saucepan of water. Remove and keep in a
warm place for 4 to 5 hours.

Pour the mixture into a sieve lined with a scalded clean cloth. After an
hour put a plate on top to weight and encourage the whey to drip through.
The curds in the cloth are the cheese. Cover and store in a cool pantry,
and it will keep for about a week. Drink the whey, flavored with fruit
juice, for your health - or use to to make scones. Keep in refrigerator and
eat within 2 days.

Yield: 1/2 lb Time: Overnight
