Homemade Cottage Cheese

  • 7 1/2 cups water
  • 2 2/3 cups instant powdered milk
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Place powdered milk and water in a mixing bowl and mix until milk is completely dissolved. Add in buttermilk. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let it stand at room temp for about 8 hrs. (you want it to clabber)

Next, place mixture into a saucepan and cook on lowest heat for 1 hr. The curds should hold their shape when pressed
between your fingers. Drain in a strainer with cheesecloth. Rinse with water and place in a bowl.

Carefully mix in salt and store in the refrigerator.

This makes about 2 cups.
