yogurt cheese

If you are making yogurt, you can use it lavishly. Here is a very simple and lower-fat alternative to cream cheese: yogurt cheese:

-Line a wire strainer with cheese cloth and put it over a large bowl
-Pour in some yogurt, maybe half a quart or so
-Wait about 6 hours; water should drain out of the yogurt into the bowl, then you have a thick spreadable cheese.

Goes good with cucumbers.


  1. cucumbers and thinly sliced french bread. well done sir.

  2. Oh, this sounds great! Thank you, Jesse. Some fresh dill would go nicely too.
