    How to make Homemade Cream Cheese

    1. Line a large colander with a layer of cheesecloth and place in the sink or over a bowl if you want to save the whey. Wet the cheesecloth to hold it firmly in place.
    2. Over medium-high heat, bring the milk and cream to a gentle simmer in a large, heavy pot. Stir in the lemon juice and continue to simmer gently till milk curdles completely.
    3. Let the curds drain thoroughly overnight in the lined colander. Turn into a bowl, cover and chill overnight.
    4. Remove from refrigerator and blend with the buttermilk. Add in the salt. Refrigerate or use immediately. Stays good for a week.

    Do we have to keep it in the fridge overnight while straining the whey?
