I was looking for ways to use up our homemade yogurt and came across this process to make yogurt cheese, similar to cream cheese. I found the strainer contraption at Mills Fleet Farm in the canning section. If you don’t have a fancy strainer you can use a clean dish towel, then twist the towel until it begins to squeeze the liquid out. Then hang this over a bowl, cover the bowl so fly’s stay out. Wait a couple hours and you have yogurt cheese.
I began making homemade yogurt a few years ago. I can make a gallon of yogurt cheaper than I can buy a large pint at the store. I have simple and easy crock pot recipe, but that post is for another day.
It’s delicious on toast, in stuffed french toast, or your favorite cream cheese recipe. Simple, easy, delicious!
I had no idea what curds and whey were. Thanks for sharing 🙂
