Yogurt Cheese

This is made by simply pouring yogurt into a sieve that has been lined with cheesecloth (paper towels or coffee filters will work fine). The water drains out of the yogurt and you are left with a cheese about the consistency of cream cheese. The longer the yogurt is allowed to drain the drier the cheese will be.

I generally let the yogurt drain for about 18 - 24 hours. An eight ounce container of yogurt will make about 6 ounces of yogurt cheese.
