  • Fill a large pot with 1 gallon of milk and bring heat over high heat. You want to let it come to a slight boil.
  • Remove from heat then stir in 1/2 cup white vinegar. Let the cheese form for about 15 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Strain the farmer's cheese into a colander lined with a fine-mesh sieve and cheesecloth.
  • Let it cool just until its not too hot to touch. Use the cheesecloth squeeze out as much of the liquid as possible.
  • You can either let it cool as a block compressed in the cheesecloth or you can let it cool crumbled in a bowl. If you don't use it right away, store it in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
