Cheese made from Yogurt

Yogurt cheese is a wonderful way to start making cheese on your own. This is also a great projects for kids because it so easy. I tried making this awhile back when I was trying to incorporate more organic dairy products into my diet. This is a great substitute for cream cheese, and tastes great on a bagel. While this cheese really isn’t suited for cooking, a little added seasoning it makes a fabulous cheese spread. The possibilities are really unlimited, I have added Italian seasonings, or even chives, or bouquet garni.

Yo Cheese

You can make you own homemade cheese with this easy recipe.

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces of yogurt - you can use more or less
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • flour sack or other lint free towel
  • colander

Instructions

Place a towel into a colander and then pour yogurt into a towel.  Lay the towel over the yogurt to completely cover the yogurt.  This keeps the yogurt from picking anything up from the local atmosphere.  Allow yogurt to drain for 5 to 6 hours,  you can let the yogurt drain for longer, the longer you let the yogurt drain the thicker the yo-cheese will become.  After the yogurt has been drained place it into a bowl.  Season with a 1/2 teaspoon of salt.  If desired add seasonings of your own desire.   For chive flavored, I add about 2 teaspoons of fresh or dried chives.
