Recipe Notes

You will need:

Cleaning your cheese cloth:

  • Rinse your cheesecloth in hot water or place it in hot water to soak until you have a chance to wash it. After soaking, rinse again. Try to remove as many bits of food as possible before you start to wash it. Use only food safe soaps (I use Branch Basics).
  • Wash then dry the cheesecloth in a dryer, or hang it outside to dry in the sun if hot out!

No cheesecloth? No problem! Create a filter: Use a coffee filter, cheesecloth, a clean pillowcase, or fine mesh strainer. Note that you may have to strain a few times depending what you use.
