Yogurt Cheese

Yogurt cheese is nothing more then yogurt that has been thickened by allowing the water to drain out. The consistency is similar to sour cream or crème fresh, and it can be used instead of quark in any of the recipes posted here.

1 quart plain yogurt

Put yogurt in multiple layers of cheesecloth, and tie the top closed. Place the package in a colander set in a bowl. Leave in the refrigerator over night.

Discard liquid from the bowl. Yogurt cheese can be used in any of the following recipes:
Herbed dip with quark or yogurt cheese
Tortellini with spring peas
• Composed smoked salmon salad
