Cooking with Home Storage–Homemade Cheese recipes using Powdered milk
These recipes are from the “Cooking with Home Storage” by Vicki Tate , used with permission of author. (see end of this post to order this wonderful book) A most have book. This book has pioneer recipes, dried foods recipes, and more.
1 cup boiling water , 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 cup powdered milk
blend all ingredients and cook over medium-high heat until milk boils. the curds will be very small and milk will be frothy. pour into a cloth lined strainer, rinse and press out excess water. put curds into a bowl and stir with a fork to break up. spread on a cookie sheet and dry for about 10 minutes in a 150 degree oven. this cheese can be salted and used in place of parmesan, or mixed with 1/4 to 1/3 commercially dried parmesan cheese. refrigerate or freeze. makes about 1 cup of curds. a pleasant flavor change takes place after about 3 months of aging under refrigeration.
4 cups warm water, 1 3/4 cup white vinegar, 2/3 cup vegetable oil, 3 cups powdered milk
blend all ingredients, pour into hot, oil-coated saucepan and heat to 115 degrees to form curds. rinse in warm water, drain and salt to taste. place in cheesecloth bag and hang to drain or squeeze out excess liquid. cool and grate or crumble. use as you would commercial mozzarella. for a firmer texture, use only 1/4- 1/3 cup of oil. *note: this has the texture and melt ability of comm. cheese, but not the flavor. you could mix 1/2 grated mock mozz. with 1/2 cup comm. mozz. for an authentic flavor.
I will post a few more later. This is a great book. I use the recipes weekly and they help save money.
