Fancy French for white cheese.
This soft cheese is very easy but everyone will think you are
tres magnifique when you serve it!
Since getting Cocoa, our family cow, I've been attempting to make cheese and other dairy items from raw milk. It can be tricky. I must admit I have had a few failures ~ rubbery mozzarella, sour cream that didn't thicken.
But this Fromage Blanc was a huge success and
will certainly be a "go to" recipe at the Red Farmhouse.
First you start by warming the milk.
Then add cultured buttermilk and lemon juice.
Let it set for a few minutes until tiny curds form.
Pour into cheesecloth and hang to drain.
Salt and season to taste.
I added Italian seasoning to mine.
Pack into a dish.
Serve with crackers, veggies,
on a sandwich,
or just dig in with a spoon.
It's rich & creamy.
Homemade Fromage Blanc from raw milk ~ delicieux!
