Found on Cooking With Alia, a site that has authentic Moroccan recipes. Alia says; "Today, we are making Moroccan Jben, which is a white cheese that is very popular in the North of Morocco, but you can find it everywhere! We eat it in breakfast or afternoon with Moroccan mint tea! this cheese is soft, can be made with cow milk or goat milk, and many people make it at home! I am going to show you how to make it in your own home. You can serve it with bread, with msemmen, or you can make as a filling for briwat! " I've posted the recipe exactly as written on her site. Here prep time is the heating time as that is all there is to it; heat and then drain! The 12 hrs of cook time is only standing and draining time (no work!)
