To cover the bottom of the lid, this volume will be enough to cut 8 liters of milk. And put the boiler in a packed state so that it does not get too cold.
After 30/40 minutes the milk will become a homogeneous mass. Put the condensed milk on a low heat and stir, helping the mass to evaporate. Remove the warmed milk from the gas and collect the cut pieces of milk by hand. So it will be possible to remove the cheese. At first the pieces of cheese will fall apart, however they will be easily packed together after being collected. During the collection process, squeeze the cheese slightly and try not to overcook it so that it does not shrink and dry out. Then place the cheese in an extractor-like plastic bowl and sprinkle a little salt on the surface. The freshly extracted cheese will release more liquid, no matter what you pour, return it to the pot with the remaining liquid. This liquid will be useful later.
