Fortunately, cottage cheese is ridiculously easy to make.

[link to housewifehowtos.com (secure)]

Basically, bring a gallon of milk (NOT ultra-pasteurized) to 190 degrees - stirring occasionally to prevent scorching/sticking.

Remove from heat and add 3/4 cup white vinegar.

Cover and let sit for 30 or so minutes.

Line a colander with double thickness cheesecloth (long enough to fold into a "bag" when ready) and place over heat resistant bowl.

When milk, vinegar mixture has cooled for 30 min, scoop the curds into the lined colander. Let drain for at least 30 min.

Gather curds in cheesecloth into a ball and run under cold water until completely cooled. Put curds in bowl and break up into small pieces.

To eat add salt (if desired) and heavy cream (milk works, too) to desired consistency.

Makes up to 2 cups and it is GOOD. Supposed to keep in fridge for a couple of weeks, but I'll never know: It's always gone before then.

Notes:
This apparently works with powdered milk as well.

I mis-read the directions and only heated the milk to 180 degrees. It worked fine, but probably wasn't as "germ-free".

Makes great lasagna, too.
 Quoting: Kamchatka


Cottage cheese is way high on my list of favorite foods - could easily eat it three times per day! Therefore, you are a huge blessing for posting this, Katchatka! hf

What made you say it apparently works from powdered milk as well? I happen to have a good supply of that which keeps re-appearing, and could go to no possible better use than cottage cheese! During famine, I could gain weight! Oops, better not. Me as long pig could become too interesting to marauders and maybe even the neighbors!

Thank you so much, Kamchatka - what a treat you are and you posted! I love this post

I went into a Chipotle yesterday. No avocados, no guacamole. If Chipotle can't get avocados, we're screwed.

Also, a friend of mine has a local health food store. He normally carries a ton of local, organic produce. He made a post this past week apologizing for the lack of produce. The spring and early "summer" we had here, in Nothern New England was awful. Nothing grew. If it did, it is REALLY late.

 Quoting: Olelady


A restaurant not having available an integral part of many of their dishes is beyond peculiar - it is a huge dash against their income base, and is pretty shocking in my view. I take that even more seriously than Walmart shortages! In Walmart there are other choices still available, other brands of whatever is out, but the important part of many dishes in a restaurant - wow!

Thank you very much for sharing this!

 Quoting: Mental Case


We have a lot of dairies in this area, fortunately, but let's see what happens when they have to feed over the winter - cottage cheese may become incredibly expensive, along with all other dairy products.

Better be stocking cheese right now, people, too. And after opening it, wipe it with a vinegar cloth or paper towel to prevent mold.

It was in one of the recipes I checked - I always look up a bunch before I try something. For this, they all basically said the same thing except for the (unknown which) one that mentioned powdered milk. My guess is that good whole milk is best, but when you're in dire straits, ANY comfort is good!

I don't know for sure because I've never tried it...but I don't see how you could make cottage cheese from powdered milk.

Powdered milk is fat free...To my understanding it's the vinegar that binds the milk-fat to make the curds...no fat = no curds.

But what do I know? 1dunno1

 Quoting: Pooka


Today I went to my discount grocery, which always has the most marvelous things, including lots of cottage cheese. Of all things - only about eight cartons of it, and only the kind with pineapple in it, which I never buy. Of course it is Saturday evening, just after the first of the month, and that is a very popular store, so it might all be replenished on Monday. I'll see next week some time.

Eggs were still in good supply, and I believe milk was, and cheese looked normal. But my cottage cheese being missing - oh my. Sad evening.

Speaking of cheese...you can freeze cheese...but when you thaw it out and use it, it will be gritty...UNLESS YOU MELT IT! Then it's perfect.

So remember...if you freeze it you need to melt it!

 Quoting: Mental Case


I disagree, MC. Cheese, once frozen, is crumbly, not gritty - grittiness may be in the type or brand you buy, not in any I have purchased and frozen - so it doesn't have to be melted, but can be used in any way you normally would, just allowing for the fact that the slices will crumble. Often that's an advantage!

 Quoting: Mental Case


Perhaps something in the way that brand is processed? I'm sorry you have suffered "gritty" and hope you find a way around it!

I buy either medium cheddar or colby/jack, two-pound blocks. Never have had anything remotely resembling gritty.

Most people know frozen cheese becomes crumbly, and it's easy to deal with. You still can make grilled cheese sammies or anything at all with it, just with slightly more careful handling. It would not work as slices for a cheese plate, however.

Never grow celery again, and have a lovely house plant to boot! Grow outdoors in temperate climate, but for the rest of us, inside works.
