Making my own cheese..wow,it even sounds interesting to me.The only homemade cheese I had ever come across before this was our very own Paneer/Cottage cheese.Somehow,I am not so keen on homemade Paneer mainly because,I cook it only once in a while since I am the only paneer lover here.It sounds much better to order in Paneer Butter Masala when I feel like having it!!
So it is with great anxiety I set about making Mascarpone cheese at home.As you might know,many bloggers have tried making this with great success and Vera’s recipe is a foolproof one.I have seen Deeba and Ria and then the whole bunch of Daring Bakers try it during the Tiramisu challenge.I was excited and couldn’t wait to make my own version of homemade Mascarpone cheese!!Here's how I made it..
Homemade Mascarpone Cheese
Recipe source – Vera’a Baking Obsession
Ingredients [Makes about 12 Oz]
500 ml whipping (36 %) pasteurized (not ultra-pasteurized)
[I used 3 Amul cream Tetra Packs each weighing 200 ml,so totally 600 ml]
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Pour the cream into a medium heat-resistant bowl, then place the bowl into the skillet.
Why did I make Mascarpone Cheese at home??What am I going to do with it??You'll know in a few days..[I love being secretive..lol]
