Homemade cheese recipe
Pour milk into a large saucepan with thick walls, add salt as indicated in the ingredients, put on the stove to boil.
While the milk is heating, you need to beat all the eggs until smooth, which should be fresh
Add sour cream to the beaten egg mixture, also of high fat content and mix thoroughly
In the meantime, as soon as the milk starts to boil and gradually rises, immediately add a mixture of eggs and sour cream, pour in our fermented milk product - Kefir and, stirring constantly, bring to a boil. In the process, within about 5 minutes, the milk should begin to coagulate and the whey separates. This means that the pan must be removed from the heat.
Put a layer of gauze on a colander or in a special form and slowly pour out the contents of the pan. Let the liquid drain for about 10-15 minutes and then turn over.
We do not press down strongly on top, put something moderately heavy and leave it in this form for 4-5 hours, or even overnight, during which the serum should completely drain
After a while, homemade feta cheese will be ready and can be consumed simply with bread, sprinkled with red ground pepper on top. You can prepare a variety of salads from feta cheese and use as various fillings.
And for storage, it is advisable to place the feta cheese in a salty solution with water and transfer to a cool place.
