Homemade Cottage Cheese?

For someone who makes yogurt, sourdough, fermented stuff, I'm certainly not shy about DIY foods. I've never seen a recipe for cottage cheese that would result in a way-better version of the kind you get in a plastic tub. It seems to have so many additives these days (even Organic varieties) that I'd love to try it on my own. Helpful resources?

I've long been curious about this, too. Here's some good information: http://extension.missouri...
I think I'd skip the make-your-own-buttermilk step, and just buy it. The actual curd-making step looks very doable. I'd use my yogurt maker (a Yogourmet 2 qt. capacity) to make the curd. It sounds like you've got yogurt-making equipment, too. In fact, you've given me a project for this weekend!

Thanks boulangere! Store-bought is never as fun as DIY, and check this out for a starter: http://www.culturesforhealth... (Cultures for Health's entire inventory is on my fantasy birthday wishlist).

I used to buy vegetable rennet, from a company I think is called Malaka. They included directions for making cottage cheese, and I don't believe it started with buttermilk.
I'd love to hear where you and boulangere take this project.
