  • 4 large chorizo sausages (hot & spicy!)

  • juice of 4-6 lemons

  • 2 tsp salt

    Make the cheese the day before by heating milk to scalding point (not boiling) then remove from heat and add lemon juice and stir well. Allow to sit for 20 minutes then strain through muslin or cheesecloth draped over a colander sitting over a deep bowl to catch the whey. The 'curds' will be trapped in the cloth and you need to allow the whey to drain off - tie the cloth and suspend over the colander/bowl overnight. Refrigerate until required.
