How to Make Queso Blanco Cheese

Step-by-Step

  1. 1. Pour milk into thick bottomed stockpot and heat on stove to 180 °F stirring constantly so that milk doesn't scorch.
  2. 2. While steering, slowly dribble in the vinegar.
  3. 3. Keep stirring for 10-15 minutes to thoroughly curdle the milk.
  4. 4. Line a colander with a fine cheesecloth and place in sink (unless want to retain whey).
  5. 5. Ladle or pour the curdled milk through the colander, draining whey down sink or into a bowl.
  6. 6. Allow the curds to cool for about 20 minutes.
  7. 7. Tie the four corners of the cheese cloth together and hang to further drain whey for 5-7 hours (until it stops dripping).
  8. 8. Remove from cheesecloth and use immediately or store in a container in fridge.
  9. 9. As Queso Blanco is a simple moist cheese, it has a short shelf life, consume within 1 week.
  10. (1 lemon produces ABOUT 1/4 C juice. Depending on size. You can get more juice out of a lemon if you microwave it for 10 seconds before juicing it.)

    It's a low temp melting cheese. Works great used in Lasagna.
    Your going to have quite a bit of whey left over after this process. I usually keep some in a glass bottle, in the fridge. I use it in my baked goods where the recipe calls for water. My baked good sure seem to be a lot lighter and fluffier.
