Home Made Mascarpone Cheese

Mascarpone cheese is hard to find in the market and even if you find, its way.. way.. too expensive. The only other option to beat the price heat is to make this cheese at home. Below is the method I followed to make one at home, and the cheese has been the best I have ever tasted. My efforts paid off when I finally succeeded, that too at first attempt itself.

  3. Let it simmer on low flame, don’t allow it to get a boil (If you have a candy thermometer, monitor the temperature. It should not go beyond 190 degrees farenheit) This should take around 8 to 10 minutes
