I re-use muslins. If they are used for making things for storage, eg jams, I think you should wash them as normal in the machine and then boil them in a pan to sterilise. If it's for something that won't be kept I just wash them in the machine and don't use much powder, or the food tastes of Persil Non Bio
Cheers Nine. Will be making paneer which we usually buy but I do prefer the texture when homemade and as it was demonstrated on the Anjum Anand Indian cookery programme on BBC2, I thought I'd have another go. It's delicious!
I made some last week, courtesy if Madhur Jaffrey! I agree, it is delicious. Just don't let yours taste faintly of Persil, like mine did And wash the muslin the minute the cheese is out, or it goes disgusting and is a nightmare to wash (thanks again, Madhur)
Ah, that is a very good point. Although saag persil paneer, it has a certain ring to it... I will take your tip and wash straight away too - actually, that's a lie as dh will be doing it all, but I can supervise with a glass of wine! Oh how I love curry night!
