My wife the cheese maker has made farmers cheese, mozzarella, sour cream, feta but she needs help with chevre.

Can some one send her a simple chevre recipe - she doesn't like to use rennet but will if there's noother way to make it.

Would you send me a pm when you post some help on this?

Many thanks.

Sorry can I but in here and check something. You bring to the boil, add the lemon and wait for the curds, put into colander - and rinse then? and then add salt?

Idiot question I know but I am about to try my first EVER cheese - what is the rinsing for please?


TIA

here is a link for a decent chevre cheese recipe. It uses rennet, liquid rennet. I use cultured buttermilk for the mesophilic culture. I use a similar recipe, except I start with 5 quarts of raw goats milk.

Instead of the lemon I use 1/2 cup vinegar to a gallon of milk. After the cheese has drained I add salt and whatever herb I want to flavour it with and press the cheese into a mold. It's very good sliced, breaded and sauted. This cheese can be made with pasturized cows milk also.
