Serves: 1 CUP OF YOGURT MAKES ⅓ CUP OF YOGURT CHEESE
Cook Time: 0 MINUTES
- 32oz Stonyfield Organic Whole Milk Plain Yogurt
- 1 bowl
- 1 colander
- 8 layers of cheesecloth
- Line colander with 8 layers of cheesecloth and place into bowl. Scoop the yogurt into the colander. Use as much as you want, there isn’t an exact measurement here. Chef's Note: A good rule of thumb is to allow one cup of yogurt to produce 1/3 cup of yogurt cheese. The amount of yogurt reduced in the cheese making process depends on how long you drain the yogurt.
- Place the yogurt in the refrigerator and allow to drain in the colander with the cheesecloth for about 6 to 12 hours, depending on desired thickness. Chef's Note: The liquid whey that will have collected in the bowl can either be discarded or can also be used as a substitute for milk or water in many bread, muffin, or cake recipes.
- Fold in any desired herbs and spices. Store in a container with a lid in the refrigerator. It will keep for about a week.
