Make Cheese with Pickle Juice

I saw a program on making homemade cheese and it got me interested because I get so much milk from WIC that I can't drink it all.  I watched a couple of tutorials on youtube and gave it a try. I used 1 gallon of fresh 2% milk and then I needed 1/2 cup of something acidic like lemon juice or vinegar. Well, I decided to use the brine from some pickled banana peppers I had left in the fridge. It wasn't curdling a lot, so I also added a tablespoon of lime juice and that did the trick! It was easy! The cheese came out crumbly and pretty tasty! 

It was really good on the fish tacos we made tonight!
