How to Make Homemade Cream Cheese

  • Boil milk, add lemon juice and stir continuously until the whey water and cheese separates
  • Turn off the heat.
  • Now pour this into a muslin cloth and drain the water.
  • Then wash the residue in cold water twice at least to get rid of the lemon flavour
  • Leave it aside, keeping a container under it to catch drippings, for 15 minutes so that the water drains.
  • Then add curd and mix well.
  • Now grind this mixture to a smooth paste.
  • Now transfer paste to the muslin cloth and hang it for 5-6 hours, till all the liquid is drained completely.
  • You can place a container under the hanging to collect the dripping.
  • Then open and collect cream cheese in a bowl and refrigerate it overnight.
