Cottage Cheese — Yogurt Plus
This is probably my favorite of all my cottage cheese recipes. Kefir cottage cheese and L. reuteri cottage cheese are really good, but this one made with Yogurt Plus has a little bit of a sweet flavor and I just love it. It is also loaded with special bacteria like Streptococcus thermophilus, Bifidobacterium longum, Plantarum, and L. delbrueckii subspecies bulgaricus, with the addition of L. reuteri which is a different strain than the one we have in our L. reuteri superfood starter. It's super fun to make and I just can't get enough of it! Best cottage cheese, and it's probiotic too!!

- The next day, bring the pot to 100°F ever so slowly over low heat (about a degree every minute – 15-20 minutes), stirring every few minutes to break up the curds on the bottom of the pan so they won’t burn. You will know it’s done when the whey separates from the curd and you see soft fluffy curds floating. The whey is a clear yellowish liquid. If you are not seeing any whey you can take it to 102-103 F° and hold it for a minute or two until you see a little whey in the mixture and clouds of white.
- Line a strainer with butter muslin (cheesecloth). Place the strainer over a bowl. Pour the mixture from the pot into the strainer a little at a time. I did this in two batches with the mixture, each time squeezing out the liquid (see next step) and removing the curds. Then I did it again till all the liquid was removed.
