Quick Quark

This is a quick way to make Quark like cheese, it is very simple and very good tasting.



2 cups Plain non-fat yogurt that has no gelatin in it.

You will need a
coffee filter
Strainer (sieve)
pan to catch the whey in



Place the yogurt in a strainer and let sit overnight in the fridge.

You will get approximately 1 cup of whey and 1 cup of quark.

You can see how the texture of this is no longer like yogurt but a soft spreadable and cheeselike.

You can make other things with the whey like Ricotta, use it instead of broth for soup or add to your pasta water.
