I was really scared to make cheese. I tried some store bought goat cheese and was disgusted. It had this awful, tangy, nastiness to it that made me gag. So I decided when I made it,I would spice the heck out of it. Last night I made a simple cheese. I am pretty ecstatic about it. I got the 1/2 gallon of milk almost to boiling ( I didn't have a thermometer,) added 1/4 cup white vinegar, and sturred. I knew it was supposed to happen, but I was amazed to see it turned into curds in way in about 5 seconds! So I turned off the heat, lined my colander with a non-fuzzy, very clean dish towel (I didn't have cheese clothe) and let it strain. When it was strained, I added some garlic powder, onion powder, and some pepper, pulled the corners together, and squeezed it into a ball. I squeezed and squeezed and squeezed until all the whey was out, and removed the ball. Here is where I was daring. I pulled off a little chunk, that had very little spice in it, and I tasted it... It was tasty! A little rubbery, but I can slice it! I think I am going to crumble it up on top of my leftover tortellini I brought for lunch today.
