    | 1. Heat the water in a very large pot over low heat. | 2. Stir in the dry milk powder as the water heats. | 3. Heat it gently until it is very hot but not boiling. | 4. Stir in about a cup of vinegar. | 5. Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to sit for about 10 minutes - don't skip this part because the mixture has to sit for the milk to have a chance to curdle. | 6. After 10 minutes there should be a big clump of white cheese curd in the middle of a pool of clear amber liquid. | 7. If the liquid is still milky, then you need to add more vinegar to finish curdling the milk. | 8. Add a couple of spoonfuls of vinegar at a time and stir gently so that more of the milk will curdle and clump up. | 9. Continue until all of the milk is curdled into curds, and the liquid (the whey) is clear. | 10. Line a strainer or collander with a lightly damp thin cotton cloth. | 11. Carefully pour the big pot of curds and whey into the strainer and let all of the whey strain off. | 12. Run a little cold water over the curds to cool them down, and to rinse out all of the whey. | 13. Squeeze the curds with your fingers to break them up, and rinse them thoroughly. | 14. Gather up the cloth around the curds and squeeze to remove as much of the moisture as you can - the curds should be quite dry. | 15. Transfer the cheese curds to a bowl or container and stir in the salt. | ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
