Ingredients And Procedures

--------------------------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.
