Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 35 g liquid cream with at least 500% mg (normal or lactose-free)
  • 15 grams lemon juice


    1. We pour the cream into the glass and heat it for 8 minutes at 90o on speed 1 1/2.
    2. Next, we add lemon juice and reheat the rest of the ingredients for 8 minutes, 90o, speed 1 1/2, without the beaker.
    3. We let the mixture rest in a hot glass for about 20 minutes at the end of the time.
    4. The inside of the basket is then lined with gauze, muslin, or a fine cotton cloth. We pour the mixture onto it and strain it. We leave it alone overnight, not squeezing or stirring it.
    5. After the resting period has passed, we wrap the basket and cheese in cheesecloth and place it in the refrigerator for another 12 hours to thicken.
    6. When the cloth has a smooth but dense texture, we pour it into a clean container and it is ready for consumption.
