Quick Homemade Low Salt Cottage CheeseSubmitted by: JESPAH
IntroductionSalt-free cheese! Is it possible? Sure it is!
Based on Alton Brown's recipe, this cheese is made for combining -- I wouldn't recommend eating it on its own. Salt-free cheese! Is it possible? Sure it is!

1 Gallon of Skim Milk
3/4 c. Vinegar
Pour the mixture into a colander lined with a tea towel or cheese cloth and let it sit and drain for 5 minutes. Gather up the edges of the cloth and rinse under cold water for 3 to 5 minutes or until the curd is completely cooled, squeezing and moving the mixture the whole time.
Once cooled, squeeze as dry as possible and transfer to a sealable container and place in the refrigerator.
Serving size is 2 c. (8 oz.)

I add half & half or cream to it, makes it creamy. Rinse really good. You can also use powered milk and a pinch of salt to make this. White vinegar as well. The whey can be brought to a boil reduced & drained/rinsed to make a ricotta The waste off of this can be used in many slow rise bread recipes - 2/27/10
Is this low sodium?
Makes: 2 cups = 16 oz (div) 16 servings = 1 oz per serving
one 1 oz serving = 125 mg sodium
1/2 cup (4 oz) of this cottage cheese = 4 (1 oz serv?)
(4 x 1oz) 4x125= 500 mg per 1/2 cup (right?)
the kroger brand in my fride has less sodium if 1/2 is 470 mg... is that true? - 8/2/12
