RECIPE FOR NEUFCHATEL CHEESE
Title:Neufchatel Cheese
Category:Cheese
Neufchatel Cheese

1/2 gallon fresh whole milk
2 ounces Mesophilic Starter Culture
1/4 tab Rennet

Mix milk with mesophilic starter.

Mix 1/4 tab Rennet into two tablespoons of COOL water. Mix this into the milk thoroughly using a whisk and stirring for at least 5 minutes.

Cover and set aside to ripen for about 15 to 20 hours at room temp (70 degrees F/21 degrees C). The milk should be a firm curd within 24 hours, however the full 15 to 20 hours is needed to develop the correct flavor.

After 15 to 20 hours, gently ladle the curds into a colander lined with a FINE cheese cloth.

Allow the curds to drain for awhile then tie the four corners of the cloth together.  Hang it to drain 8 to 12 hours.

After the curds have drained, place the curds into a small bowl. Mix by hand until pasty.

Add salt, herbs, etc. to taste.

Place the cheese into a sealable container into a refrigerator. The cheese will firm up a little once under refrigeration.
