This is an expectation setting post. Tomorrow’s recipe isn’t like any other recipe I’ve made for cheese. I will try to put a lot of the staple cheese making procedures in place, but the recipe does go off the script a bit.
This cheese, in Brazil, would be the equivalent to cottage cheese: a simple to make cheese that a farmer without much resources would be able to do without issues.
The other thing is: I have not yet unpacked my cheese making equipment. It is still in a big box in the garage. As such, I will not have my little vat to keep the temperature more or less the same, I will not have a thermometer to measure precisely the temperature of the milk, or whey if required. I will not have my muslins and my cleaning material.
Fingers crossed that tomorrow’s endeavor will be a fruitful one.
