“Full of flavor and low in calories” … yes please!
Sara at The Herb Gardener has a simple, delicious-sounding recipe for herbed yogurt cheese. We’re getting some spring-like weather here in Northern California, and the chives in my herb garden are growing in a vibrant spring green. I’m going to make this! I just need to check if I have cheesecloth and a sieve. When I do – tonight or this weekend – I’ll let you know what I think in the comments of this post. If you make it before me or you’ve made yogurt cheese before, please share your thoughts about this recipe. I’m new at making yogurt cheese. Or any kind of cheese. Thanks!

    Yum! I just made this earlier today. I let the yogurt drain for probably 3 hours, and I would probably let it drain even longer next time I make it. So easy, delicious, and good for you!

    Hi Laura,
    What kind of device did you use to drain the yogurt?

    Hi Ann – I used a small wire colander, and the cheese was wrapped in cheesecloth.
