  • FreezingFreezes well


  • 1 liter of 3.25% milk
  • 3 tablespoons of white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped chives
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt (or more, as preferred)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cracked pepper
  • Cheesecloth, clean cloth or sterile gauze


  1. Bring the milk close to a boil, as soon as you see the first bubbles add the vinegar and remove from heat. Let sit for 15 minutes.
  2. Lay the cheesecloth (or either option chosen) at the bottom of a strainer and pour the mix over it. Let sit for 30 minutes, thus removing the whey.
  3. Transfer all ingredients into a bowl, pour into cheesecloth again and roll into a tight ball. Refrigerate for 2 hours on a plate to let drain.
  4. Enjoy right away or keep for up to a week in an air tight container in the fridge.
