Basic Yogurt Cheese Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

2 cup low or non-fat yogurt

Recipe Preparation

Line a large strainer or colander with two or three layers of fine
cheesecloth. Spoon yogurt into the center of the cloth. Gather the
corners of the cloth and pull them up. Twist them together to form the
yogurt into a tight ball in the center of the cloth. Fasten with a
twist tie or rubber band near the ball. Tie the remaining long ends of
cheesecloth to a faucet or cupboard handle so that the whey can drip
from the cheese. Let the cheese drip out for at least 6 hours or
overnight, and be sure you have a bowl underneath to catch the
liquid. The whey is full of nutrients and can be added to soups,
sauces or vegetable dishes. Put the yogurt ball in a strainer with a
weight on top to force out even more liquid. (A
plastic bag of dry rice or beans makes a good weight.) Press down on
the weight occasionally to remove the last bit of whey. Yogurt Cheese
is ready when it is the solid consistency of cream cheese.
