Why I Love This Recipe

Use the whey in place of Buttermilk in any recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

1 quart plain yogurt
EITHER Regular or Low Fat


Directions

Line a large strainer or colander with 6 layers of cheesecloth.


Place the strainer or colander over a bowl.


Place the yogurt on the cheesecloth.


Draw edges of cheesecloth together, twist loosely and secure with string.


Put in fridge and let drain overnight.


After 8-10 hours, take the cheese cloth and twist lightly to shape the cheese into a ball or ovoid shape. Empty the whey into a lidded container for later use.


Let the cheese stand another 4-8 hours in the colander.


HOW LONG DOES THIS TAKE? - 1 hour with no drips and your yogurt cheese is ready to use....Or add more flavor...


You can flavor the yogurt with chunked or minced fresh fruit, minced herbs, finely minced veggies, roasted garlic.....use your imagination.
