Lately I've gotten hooked on Mediterranean food. One of my favorites is labneh, which is a soft cheese made overnight from plain yogurt. I use it instead of cream cheese on a bagel, or as a spread on crackers or crudites, or drop a dollop on fish or vegetables or in soup.
|Pour it in cheesecloth and then in a fine mesh strainer to drain in the frig overnight.|
|I place a bowl on top of the cheesecloth to help press out the fluid.|
|The fluid which drains out is called whey. It can be added to bones which you're cooking off for soup.|
By the next day, you've got a wonderfully tangy and tasty cheese!
