I'm looking for a recipe for homemade cottage cheese and also for a clean cocktail sauce recipe. I looked in the team cookbooks, but didn't see anything. I did see the clean ketchup recipes - thinking I could use one of those as the base for a clean cocktail sauce?
I've been thinking about making my own cottage cheese since I switched over to all raw dairy products. Plus, I mostly use the raw milk for my coffee cream, and end up with a whole lot of milk left when the cream is gone - thought the cottage cheese would be a good way to use up the extra milk. I found this cottage cheese recipe on food network - does this look okay or does anyone have a better recipe? (Obviously I would be using the raw milk, not pasteurized.)
1 gallon pasteurized skim milk
3/4 cup white vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 cup half-and half-or heavy cream
Pour the skim milk into a large saucepan and place over medium heat. Heat to 120 degrees F. Remove from the heat and gently pour in the vinegar. Stir slowly for 1 to 2 minutes. The curd will separate from the whey. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Pour the mixture into a colander lined with a tea towel and allow to sit and drain for 5 minutes. Gather up the edges of the cloth and rinse under cold water for 3 to 5 minutes or until the curd is completely cooled, squeezing and moving the mixture the whole time. Once cooled, squeeze as dry as possible and transfer to a mixing bowl. Add the salt and stir to combine, breaking up the curd into bite-size pieces as you go. If ready to serve immediately, stir in the half-and-half or heavy cream. If not, transfer to a sealable container and place in the refrigerator. Add the half and half or heavy cream just prior to serving.
But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil 4:13
By the grace of God I am what I am. 1 Cor. 15:10
