Thumbs up Cottage Cheese from Scratch

Can make homemade cottage cheese that is quite good from powdered milk or UHT and also yogurt.

Cottage Cheese
8 cups water
2.5 cups full cream milk powder
1 tsp citric acid (can use lemon) the citric acid works better

Bring the water and milk powder to where it just starts to boil. Add the citric acid, and the whey and curd separate.
Pour through cheese cloth (or clean tea towel) to strain curd. Twist towel and place in strainer with weight on top for 1 hour.
Cut into cubes or crumble add a pinch of salt to taste. Sooo Good
Im in Australia so can get full cream milk powder. Have used UHT milk with this as well. Great when you run out of cheese, I use in lasagna, salads, eggs, stir frys, fried rice etc. I also save the Whey and use that in a pot of soup, taste like a veg stock and good for you.

I wonder if Soy milk would work?
