    3. In a large bowl mix the rennet tablets and salt together and then pour the warm milk on top and mix well.
    4. Let it sit for 45 minutes, so you can now start spooning the cheese into the cheese molds with a slotted spoon.
    5. Devide into the molds evenly, while letting the liquid drain out of the mold.
    6. For the rest of the day keep draining out the liquid by tilting the mold or just using a spoon.
    7. Enjoy your homemade fresh cheese.
