Notes

  • Note 1 Cheesecloth is a popular cheese making material. You can purchase it at cooking stores and for the Aussies reading this, I get mine from Spotlight. I have also used Chux (clean) when making paneer, this will work too. 
  • Note 2 I lay my 2 layers of cheesecloth in opposite directions, so the weave overlaps.
