Cheese and Tortillas

Queso Blanco - the original Jack Cheese

2 cups warm water
1-1/2 cup dry milk powder
1/3 cup white vinegar

Blend all ingredients. Pour into saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring until curds form and remaining liquid is a clear yellow. If still milky looking, add vinegar, 1 tsp at a time. Pour curds into a cheese cloth lined colander. Rinse well with very warm water to remove vinegar flavor. Add salt to taste and press if desired between 2 plates. Wrap in plastic and store in fridge.

Wheat & Sesame Tortillas

½ tsp water
2 cups whole wheat flour
3 Tablespoon powdered milk
1/3 cup sesame seeds
Mix together. Add:
2 Tablespoons butter (cut in) or applesauce
Slowly add:
2 Tablespoons yogurt
½ cup lukewarm water
Knead 5 minutes then let rest 10 minutes (dough will be stiff)
Divide into 8ths—roll out paper thin. Cook on heavy ungreased griddle.
