Making Soft Cheese is fun and easy, and most soft cheeses are made with these simple steps;

  1. Milk is warmed
  2. Cheese making ingredients are added
  3. The milk coagulates into a single curd
  4. The curd is placed into cheese cloth and hung to drain off the whey
  5. The curd is sometimes pressed to remove more whey, with salting taking place before or after this process
  6. The cheese is refrigerated, and is often ready to be eaten immediately
