I have a very easy recipe for a great white cheese…
All you need is 4 liters of fresh milk you bring it to boil and then take it away from the heat and add a quarter cup of white vinegar.. let it stay for 5 minutes then separate the water from the cheese and if you want the cheese to be salty boil 2 cups of water and when the water become cold soak the cheese in it until it is ready to eat then enjoy!!
