Homemade Goat's Cheese
- 1 L whole goat's milk
- 3 tbsp (40 g) fresh lemon juice
- salt to taste
- Heat your goat's milk on low until it reaches 180 F ( 82 C). Remove from heat once it comes to temperature and stir in 40 grams of lemon juice. The curd and whey will separate as you stir. Leave to rest for 15 minutes then strain though two sheets of cheese cloth placed in a strainer. Allow to sit for a minimum of 1 hour for a soft and spreadable cheese or place in the fridge to drain overnight for a firmer more crumbly goat cheese. Serve as is or roll in fresh flowers, herbs, chopped nuts, or chopped dried fruit.
