How To Make hrudka, easter cheese, mark's

  • 1
    Beat the eggs. Add milk, sugar and vanilla. Beat the mixture. Cook in a double boiler until the mixture curds and only water remains. Over a LARGE bowl, pour the curd into a cheese cloth sack (most of the water will immediately drain off), and tie the end tightly. Squeeze the mixture removing most of the remaining water. Hang the sack over the bowl overnight. Makes 1 large round loaf.

    Notes: The cooking takes only about 1/2 hour, the rest is "curing time". Old timers often tied the cheese over the kitchen faucet overnight. For food safety reasons, consider doing this in your refrigerator, but it will make the process slower.
