Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Pour the Whole Milk (1 gallon) into a large saucepan and place over medium heat. Heat to 120 degrees F (50 degrees C).
Step 2
Remove from the heat and gently pour in the White Wine Vinegar (1/2 cup). Stir slowly for 1 to 2 minutes. The curd will separate from the whey.
Step 3
Cover and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Step 4
Return the pot to very low heat and add Salt (2 tablespoon). Gently stir with a wooden spoon to break up curds.
Step 5
Pour the mixture into a colander lined with two layers of cheesecloth and squeeze out most of the moisture. Cool for 10 minutes.
Step 6
Transfer drained curds to a mixing bowl. Add Heavy Cream (1/2 cup). Stir with a fork to break up curds and combine. Taste and add more salt if needed. Chill before serving.
