How much salt to add to this cheesecake recipe?
« on: December 02, 2013, 12:29:10 PM »
I am making my own cheese for this cheesecake recipe, store bought cheese already have salt in it, and different recipe for the same kind of cheese give different amount of salt, just say I make my homemade cheese with no salt and then use it in the recipe, How much salt should I make, this recipe asks for 16 ounce cream cheese and 16 ounce mascarpone sugar, just say I up everything for the filling by 50% as I want a tall cheesecake, how much salt should I add?

Reason I choose the recipe as many comments say it is the best, unlike most of the so called "best" recipe, many commented but haven't make it yet, this recipe is not that popular but a big enough percentage of people who made this commented it is the best.

And i will use this as a topping, based on the comments, this lemon curd seems to be the best lemon curd I found on the internet.

For cakes, sometimes I take recipe for filling from one recipe and topping another recipe and combine in hope to make the best ever. Thanks again in advance for your replies.

Hope your cheesecake turned out good. 

I'm hoping to use my ricotta for a cheesecake this xmas but still have to find a recipe.
The years have been kind to me, it's the weekends that done the damage.

Late to the party, but when calculating salt for food by weight-I add 16-20g of salt per kg of food for savoury dishes.
As this is a dessert I would still probably add salt to about 14g per kg. :)
