Cottage cheese is a delicious, healthy, but expensive source of protein many love to snack on. It can retail between 1.50 or 2.00 and is a slightly pricey snack I indulge in.

In a bid to save money I have made my own - it has a fresher taste than the stuff you buy, and you can guarantee it is better than what you'd ever buy because you know what's gone into it.

There are so many which are full fat, low fat, cream and chive flavoured, but I just want a normal, healthy, source of protein which I can enjoy without paying a hefty price.

Preparation Time: Overnight
Cooking Time: 15
Makes: 1 kg pot

4 pints organic whole milk
Half tsp salt
Tblsp whole probiotic yogurt

Pour the milk into a large saucepan and warm for 1 minute over a low heat.

Stir in the yogurt, take off the heat and allow to cool for 1 hour, then cover with a lid and warm the milk to a simmering heat for 15 minutes.

10 hours later remove the lid and check the saucepan - it should have fermented overnight and be a wash with whey.

Pour the whey away.

Place the cottage cheese in a suitable tub/receptacle.

Add the salt to taste.

The cottage cheese will keep in the fridge for one week if kept covered.
