Homemade Mascarpone Cheese

  I have a great obsession to try out things from scratch, and of course yes; everything  i try out isn't a success all the time, I too have my own flaws.But purely its kind of fun trying out new things, many of you out there would totally agree with me for sure. Well, this time its Mascarpone Cheese and im so so happy that i gave it a try and it was a perfect success, i used it for the Tiramisu recipe.

I simply followed the recipe from the blog Baking Obsession ,and loved it. I'm sure to make this again at home at try out new desserts and cakes.

Homemade Mascarpone Cheese

500 ml / 2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream ( pasteurized , not ultra pasteurized ) 
1 tbsp Fresh Lemon juice

Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a wide skillet. Reduce the heat to medium-low so the water is barely simmering.
Pour the cream into a medium heat-resistant bowl, then place the bowl into the skillet. Heat the cream, stirring often, to 190 F. It will take about 15 minutes of delicate heating. 
Add the lemon juice and continue heating the mixture, stirring gently, until the cream curdles. Do not expect the same action as you see during ricotta cheese making.
 All that the whipping cream will do is become thicker, like a well-done crème anglaise. It will cover a back of your wooden spoon thickly. 
You will see just a few clear whey streaks when you stir. Remove the bowl from the water and let cool for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, line a sieve with four layers of dampened cheesecloth and set it over a bowl. Transfer the mixture into the lined sieve.
 Do not squeeze the cheese in the cheesecloth or press on its surface (be patient, it will firm up after refrigeration time). Once cooled completely, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate (in the sieve) overnight or up to 24 hours.
