Mascarpone Homemade

I tried it finally and so very loved it….the experience of making something so good. was mind boggling..I had put off the idea of buying the mascarpone tub way too many times, worrying that I may not get to use it in time before it hits the expiry date.
I used Amul fresh cream and will be hooked to this one for long. Nothing seemed this simple even the paneer which can at times go wrong

Ingredients
700 fresh heavy full fat cream
1 tspn white vinegar

Method
1) Boil the cream in a large pot on low -medium heat using a double boiler. 
2) If you have a candy thermometer , wait till the temperature rises to 90-100 c. Else, let it heat till it is just under boiling, slightly bubbling.
3) At this stage, add 1 tspn of white vinegar.
4) Using a spoon keep stirring for another 5-7 min.
5) The cream will not coagulate but sort of thicken (or may coagulate little). Keep stirring until it starts coating the the back of the spoon, about another minute or so.
6) Now, strain this liquid, in a muslin cloth (large) in a huge basin.
7) Tie it from all sides .
8) Leave it overnight in refrigerator.
9) About a cup of water or more will be accumulated
10) If the texture appears grainy , then beat using an electric beater.
Your mascarpone is ready.

  1. Well done Pradnya, homemade mascarpone looks prefect.

  2. you are AMAZING..I would never think of making this myself at home. In fact, I used marscapone in a recipe I just did in advance for next month's BM – but I used the tub from the supermarket. The thought never even crossed my mind to try and make it myself 🙂

  3. Thanks Pradnya. I have been postponing buying for the same reason. Thanks for this recipe.

  4. Looks good.. Very helpful as we do not get mascarpone here very easily..
