With virtually the same process as Queso Fresco, bar the pressing of the curd, this recipe will have you just whipping it up again and again. It is completely amazing. I love it. Then add it to the Korma recipe that we have floating around on here somewhere. Your children's children will be thanking me! Best to give yourself a day for the curd to compress and be very very gentle with it once you have a solid piece. You cheesemaker you!!
