"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
10 c powdered milk 4 qts water 2 tablets junket tablets (dissolved) 1 qt Half & Half cream
Pour powdered milk into container and slowly add water, stirring to dissolve milk. Heat mixture until lukewarm. Meanwhile dissolve junket tablets in a cup with some of the water. Add this to milk; mix in quart of Half and Half. DO NOT OVERHEAT MILK! When it is lukewarm remove pan from burner and let sit about a half an hour to 45 min. Take a large spoon and break up the mixture. Let rest for about 10 minutes. Pour mixture into a small bag (cheesecloth) or container with holes so that it can drain. Let it drain for 5 to 6 hours or overnight. When using cheesecloth, wrap the cheese in a round ball and tie with a rubber band.
Serve Queso Blanco in substitution for Cottage Cheese. My personal favorite is to pour dark corn syrup over cheese slices.
