Oh friends. I just love sitting down here with you and sharing what's in my head. Or in my heart. Or happening in my kitchen.
Super-Easy Yogurt Cheese
- Plain yogurt, preferably homemade
- A piece of clean cheesecloth
- A wooden spoon
- A bowl
- Set a bowl on the counter. Then, double-up a piece of cheese cloth.
- Pour two or three cups of cultured yogurt into the cloth and then gently lift up the sides of the cheesecloth to create a hammock of sorts for the yogurt. Tie the sides of the cloth into a loose knot and slip a wood spoon through the created knot.
- Now, we need to drain the whey off the yogurt. To do this, I jimmy-rigged a contraption that worked very well. You can use whatever setup works for you, but the premise is simple: the yogurt needs to be able to drain, so it needs to be elevated above the whey that will run off.
- Allow the yogurt to drain for about eight hours or until the whey has almost completely stopped dripping. After the yogurt is finished dripping, you can reserve the whey (if you wish).
- That's it. Yogurt cheese.
