Well, this particular kitchen science experimentation is going to teach you exactly what curds and whey are, and you will also make yourself! Milk consists of sugars, proteins, fat, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. When you include an acid such as lemon juice to heat milk, it induces molecules of a few of the proteins to bond to one another. That creates a good lump of protein that's also called a cheese curd (the leftover liquid is known as whey.) It's possible to eat cheese curds in their own (they taste just like ricotta cheese) or high with fruit or honey for an wonderful treat.
Step 1: Build the components.
Place the milk from the saucepan and cook over moderate heat until it is tender and foamy, stirring all of the time. Do not allow the milk boil.
Remove the milk from the heat and stir into the ⅛ cup lemon juice.The milk ought to curdle, dividing into small lumps (curds) and also a thin liquid (whey).
Spoon the curds to the strainer, allowing the liquid (whey) accumulate in the container.
Pour the strained cheese in the other little bowl. Serve with lemon or honey and revel in!
