- Isn't it pretty! 😍 Merry Christmas to me 😁

The humble Cheese Cloth 🧀😊

Do you guys reckon I can class Cheese Cloth as a kitchen gadget? Regardless, it's so nice to finally have a proper one, it's the best present I've ever got for myself! Look at how pretty it is! Bring on all the Paneer 😁 Om nom nom nom nom 😍

Here's the recipe I follow for anyone keen to try:

And here's the link to my last attempt with a step by step guide 🙂

Have any of you tried making your own cheese? If not, Paneer is a great place to start, it's easy to add to your favourite Indian curries and it seems to be the fastest, most simple cheese to make at home that I could find. Definitely the best reward to effort ratio and you get an insane sense of achievement when it's done. Win, win!

  • BRAVO!

    People in China also use this kind of cloth to filter soybean fragments out of soy milk (both for better-textured soy milk and as a process of making tofu).

    I use a sieve but that means my soy milk tastes like sand. Thanks for showing this.

    • You're welcome Peter! Thanks for sharing your information, it is very interesting! I wonder why the sieve makes it taste like sand? 🤔

    • Because it can't filter out extremely small particles (fragments of the soybeans). And those particles makes the texture rough when I drink it.

    • I had a shirt I got to wear when we went to Fiji, I didn't realise at the time but it's basically like cheese cloth 😂

  • Excellent! I usually have a stash of cheesecloth around.

    • The first time I just used a thin tea towel, but the cheese cloth was so much easier, my little block of paneer looks super cute!
