About this recipe: A fresh cheese recipe, delicious with honey or sugar as a dessert or for breakfast.


  • 1 lemon
  • 1 litter of fresh milk (full fat)


  1. Squeeze the juice of the lemon and keep it in a glass
  2. Heat the milk until it starts to boil
  3. Slowly add the lemon juice until the milk 'breaks'. Sometimes a few drops is enough, sometimes more is needed. Mix with a fork and remove it from the cooker.
  4. Pour the milk through a double fine mesh strainer to separate the cheese and the water. Don't press the mix, let it strain by itself.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
