I've been buying a lot of farmer's cheese lately, but I think I could save a ton of money if I just bought milk and made my own cheese. I'm currently following a personalized version of the Blood Type Diet (SWAMI computer program that calculates a diet just for me) and I get farmer's cheese as a "Beneficial food" while ricotta cheese is only a "neutral" and many other dairy products are complete avoids. (On my own, I was avoiding all dairy since it led to fibromyalgia flaring up, but now that I know which dairy products are OK for me, I'm enjoying them without problems.)
I've looked online for recipes to make it, but those looked identical to recipes for ricotta cheese- cook milk with lemon or vinegar, let sit, then strain. The farmer's cheese I can buy in the store is cultured, and that's the kind of cheese I'd like to make myself. Besides the fact that farmer cheese has a higher rating in my personalized food list, a cultured dairy product intuitively feels healthier.
Is there some way to make my own cultured farmer cheese, using purchased farmer's cheese as a starter?
