Awesome!!!!. Does the milk being used have to be fresh, (raw) meaning not homogenized or pasteurized?

I was all gung ho to make that before Xmas but never had the cheese balls to do it. You make it look somewhat easy. We have fresh Jersey milk and I still haven't done it
Thanks for sharing!

Save the whey and it can be used in place of buttermilk or cook it again to make ricotta
