Heat the milk in a saucepan and stirring continuously, keeping in medium to high heat.
As the milk becomes hot and frothy (before it boils), add the filtered lemon juice, stir the contents and reduce the heat slightly.
Keep stirring and cook the contents, as the milk curdles because of the addition of lemon juice which is citric in nature. If the milk is not curdling, you may add a little more lemon juice as needed.
As the milk curdles very well, remove the curdled milk from the hot stove and keep it for cooling down a bit.
As the milk cools down a little, the curdling will be almost done, and you can filter out the remaining water (which is the whey) which can be discarded or you can use it as a broth or any recipes where it works. We only need the curdled solid parts to make the cheese.
Now filter the curdled milk through a good strainer. As I mentioned earlier in the post, you may also use a strainer lined with cheese cloth, if you have a cheese cloth at home. If not you may just use a fine mesh strainer.
The curdled milk that is retained in the strainer is what we need to make the homemade cheese.
Keep the contents in the strainer for few minutes until it cools down and almost all water is filtered out.
Gently press the curdled contents in the strainer (once it is cool enough) so that any remaining water content will get filtered out.
Now you have got the homemade cheese inside the strainer, gently transfer it to a microwave safe bowl. I do not recommend using a plastic bowl for microwaving as some plastics may have a tendency to melt.
Add in the salt and you can mix with a spoon to blend in the salt evenly. The cheese will be crumbly in texture but that's delicious.
Microwave in high for about 1 minute or another 1 more minute, as it will help improve the texture of the cheese. If you think the cheese looks fine without microwaving, you may skip this step to microwave the cheese.
Now if you are looking to make cheese to add to salads, you can simply add this delicious cheese just by crumbling it and sprinkling on salads which will be a delicious addition to your salads.
