So now, let’s look at how we can make fresh homemade cheese.
Ingredients of the fresh cheese
This recipe is one of the simplest you can find because you will only need two ingredients: milk and a natural acidulant.
The acid is in charge of turning the milk into cheese. As you can imagine, there are several different types and each of them adds their own touch to the cheese. For example, vinegar gives it a lumpier texture; lemon and lime add freshness, a little colour and a smooth texture; and yoghurt adds are more acidic flavour and creamy texture.
In most basic cheese recipes, you will see that they use milk and lemon juice, but we encourage you to experiment with other acids so you can choose your favourite texture and flavour.
An easy and quick process for making cheese in a mould
To make this recipe you need:
1. Pour the milk into the cheese mould container and heat it up in the microwave for approximately 10-12 seconds on full power.
2. Add the two tablespoons of lemon juice to the container with the warm milk. Remember that you can replace it for other acids like vinegar, lime or yoghurt.

4. Leave it to rest for 30 minutes at room temperature. Now it’s time to get creative, if you want to add a personal touch to your cheese, you can do it now, adding herbs, spices, salt or anything you can think of.
5. After 30 minutes, it's time to move the mixture to the strainer to remove the whey. Insert the strainer into the first container and leave it in the fridge for at least one hour.
