Easy homemade cheese make fromage blanc

Fromage blanc ( /ˌfrɒmɑːʒ ˈblɒ̃/; [fʁɔmaʒ blɑ̃]; also known as maquée) is a fresh cheese originating from the north of France and the south of Belgium. The name means "white cheese" in French. Fromage frais ("fresh cheese") differs from fromage blanc in that, according to French legislation:

The denomination fromage frais is reserved for unripened cheese that underwent a mostly lactic fermentation. Fermented white cheese marketed under the terms "fresh" or "fresh cheese" must contain live flora at the time of sale to the consumer.

So, fromage frais must contain live cultures when sold, whereas with fromage blanc, fermentation has been halted.

Fromage blanc is a creamy soft cheese made with whole or skimmed milk and cream. It is similar to some kinds of quark. It has the consistency of cream cheese, but less fat. Pure fromage blanc is virtually fat free, but cream is frequently added to improve the flavour, which also increases the fat content, frequently to as high as 8% of total weight.
