  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Bring vinegar and salt to a boil in a saucepan. Add milk; reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring constantly, until milk separates and curds begin to form, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Line a strainer with cheesecloth. Spoon curdled milk into the cheesecloth, place over a bowl, and refrigerate until fully drained, at least 2 hours. Transfer strained curds to a bowl to serve.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
