Cooking Instructions

Step 1
On the stovetop, bring the 2% Reduced Fat Milk (8 cups) to 180 degrees F (85 degrees C) while whisking occasionally. Use a candy thermometer to ensure that you are getting the right temperature.
Step 2
Once it reaches 180 degrees F (85 degrees C), take the milk off of the heat and stir in the Distilled White Vinegar (1/3 cup) right away. You should begin to see the yellowish whey separating from the curds immediately.
Step 3
Allow the curds and whey to cool at room temperature for approximately 30 minutes.
Step 4
Line a colander with a double-layer of cheesecloth. Put the colander in a large bowl. Pour the curds and whey into the lined colander. Let drain for 5 minutes. The curds will stay in the cloth while the whey will drain into the bowl. (The whey can be discarded or saved to be used in another recipe.)
Step 5
Gather up the edges of the cheesecloth so that the curds are collected into a tight ball. With clean hands, squeeze the ball gently over the sink to release more whey. If you are concerned about a vinegar taste remaining, you can run the ball under gently running water and squeeze again, if desired.
Step 6
Unwrap the cheesecloth. You can use the cheese you have now as ricotta in your recipes. If you want cottage cheese instead, continue on.
Step 7
Put the cheese ball in a bowl and gently break up the curds with a spoon. Stir in the Salt (1/4 tsp) and Heavy Cream (1/3 cup) . You will find that the curds readily absorb the cream, so the finished cottage cheese does not contain much liquid. Enjoy!
