Quark 

This German soft cheese is so simple and versatile to have in the kitchen that it becomes a low fat favorite of most home cheese-makers. It makes lovely baked cheesecakes and pies or a rich topping for baked potatoes. Fromage Blanc and Fromage Frais are French versions that use a slightly less aromatic culture, but produce similar cheeses.

Time: 45 minutes to prepare, 10 hours to culture, 6 hours to drain. Yield: 1lb 4 oz (525 g) Quark.

  • 1 quart (1 liter) Whole or skimmed cow milk
  • 1/2 Soft Cheese sachet
  • 1/2 Vegetarian Rennet sachet
