Queso Fresco

Queso fresco (Spanish for “fresh cheese”) is a Central American cheese, and can be used when making quesadillas.  I started with three gallons of milk, which should give me three pounds of cheese in the end.  I spent the entire afternoon working on this cheese, and it still needs to press for five more hours.  I’ll be staying up until past midnight just so I can refrigerate the result.  Hopefully I can keep myself awake that long …
