It’s not difficult to a make homemade version in a few hours. And it tastes really great when used in recipes.
- To make homemade goat cheese, fill a saucepan with organic goat’s milk. Heat the milk gradually until it reaches 180F. Watch it closely. Remove milk from heat.
- Stir in fresh lemon juice from 2 lemons. Let the milk stand until it curdles, about 20 seconds. (Don’t expect curdles, like cottage cheese curdles. Add a “little bit” more lemon if needed. Line a colander with SEVERAL layers of cheesecloth. Several layers are necessary so you don’t lose any of the cheese through the soggy cloth. Place colander over a large bowl to catch the whey drips.
- Ladle milk into colander.
