There are several quick and easier cheeses to make with fresh goat milk. This simple vinegar  cheese is one of the few, and is perfect for a beginner.

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 2 gallons goat milk
  • 1/2 cup or more vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

 

 

Directions:

 

  • Heat milk to 185°F in a stainless steel pot.
  • Add vinegar until the milk begins to curdle, approximately 1/2 cup for 2 gallons of  milk. Once the milk begins to curdle, stir well, and cover and let sit with no heat under it for an hour or more.
  • Then ladle cheese curds into a lined colander (cheese cloth) and let drain over another pan to catch the whey. You can stop draining while soft and creamy for a soft spreadable cheese, or drain longer for a drier, crumbly cheese.
  • Mix in approximately 1 teaspoon sea salt to taste  and whichever seasonings you choose: –  Dill, garlic and herbs, green onion —the choices are yours, limitless!

What is Quark cheese?

It is simple to make Quark at home from buttermilk. It can also serve as a substitutes for ricotta in dishes such as lasagna, and as a base for dips and toppings. Alternatively, it can also substitutes in recipes that use sour cream, yogurt cheese or cream cheese.

It will takes up to 48 hours before it is ready for your recipes, although the actual time that you will need to spend with it is only about 10 minutes.

 

 

  • To make quark cheese, heat 1 quart of goat milk to 88 °F, and add 1 Tablespoon. buttermilk with active cultures. If your buttermilk is not quite fresh, you may want to add an extra tablespoon, as the culture activity declines over time.
  • Cover the pot, and leave it at room temperature for 24 hours. At the end of that time, the mixture should have a consistency very similar to yogurt.
  • Pour the mixture into a cheese cloth-lined colander. Either leave the cheese in the colander and cover, or tie the cheese cloth corners together over a wooden spoon or stick and hang over a pot.
  • Leave the cheese to drain for 12-24 hours in the refrigerator. Remove from the cheese cloth, place in a dish, and Enjoy! Normally, you will get about 8 oz. of cheese from 1 quart of milk.
