How To Make Homemade Cheese l Homemade Cheese Recipe:
The process of making stretchy and melty cheese at home starts with boiling milk and curdling it. Similar to the process of making paneer, we need to let the water drain out. Next, emulsify the cheese by blending it in the blender for a stretchy and soft texture. Add butter, milk, and a mixture of water, baking soda, and citric acid (citric acid can easily be found in most grocery stores). Once the emulsification is done, cook it with a double broiler method and you will see how the cheese slowly starts shaping into a melty and stretchy mass. Once done, store in an air-tight container and freeze. Use this homemade cheese in salads, sandwiches, and other recipes of your choice. See the other details of making homemade cheese here:
