Cheese Making

So, I decided to try out a recipe for making cheese out of powdered milk.

3 c. powdered milk
6 c. water
Heat milk to 12o degrees and turn of heat. Add 1/4 c. vinegar and let sit for 10 minutes. Pour over a cheese cloth and rinse off cheese curds.

Sounds easy, right? Well, it was pretty simple, but it really didn't curdle at first so I added probably another 1/2 c. vinegar when it was all said and done. It only produced about 2 c. of cheese but I had to use the equivalent of a gallon of powdered milk. It tasted very bland. It did actually melt pretty well though. We made pizza pockets and put that in there and it wasn't so bad. I probably won't make it again, but I will maybe try a different recipe.
