- Tie the yogurt in several layers of cheesecloth. Hang over a bowl to catch the whey which is discarded. Allow to drain overnight. Maybe not in the old country, but this should be done in the refrigerator. This will produce a soft cream cheese-textured product.
- Cucumber salad - add thinly sliced cucumber, mint, garlic and toasted sesame seeds.
- Garlic and sesame seed - add crushed garlic and toasted sesame seeds.
- Fruit cheese - add mashed or finely diced fruit and serve on your morning bagel or hot sourdough toast as if it were cream cheese
Keeps for several weeks, refrigerated, in a tightly covered container. Always ready for a quick and healthy snack
