Recipe for Cottage Cheese with Herbs

  • 2 pints (1.2L) milk
  • 1 teaspoon rennet
  • salt and freshly milled black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon chopped chives
  • 2 teaspoons chopped parsley
  • 1/2 clove garlic, crushed (or a little chopped onion if preferred)
  • 2 and 1/2 oz (60g) carton double cream (optional)

1.      Pour the milk into a pan and heat gently to blood temperature.

2.      Stir in the rennet, pour the mixture into a jug and leave it for about four hours at room temperature. The milk will set like junket.

3.      Place a double layer of muslin over a colander in a bowl

4.      Turn set milk on to the muslin. Tie up the corners with string and hang up to drain overnight.

5.      The next day place the cheese (still in the muslin) into a sieve with a weight on top so that the remaining moisture can be squeezed out - about two hours

6.      Take the cheese out of the muslin and put it in a bowl. Mix in the remaining ingredients adding the cream if liked or even a little 'top of the milk'.

7.      Leave the mixture for a few hours so that the herbs can flavour the cheese.

8.      This cheese will keep five days in the refrigerator.
