Yogurt Cream Cheese

Yogurt cream cheese is actually really easy to make.  Here is what you do:

  1.  Start with one quart of plain yogurt.  I assume that a flavored yogurt will result in flavored cream cheese, but I haven’t tried it.
Yogurt to turn into cream cheese.
  1.  Pour the yogurt into clean cheesecloth or a linen towel.  I put mine into a pot of boiling water first, to kill off any extra bacteria.
Yogurt poured into sterile cheesecloth.
  1.  Hang the cheesecloth somewhere to drain at room temperature for about 12 hours.
Cheesecloth tied into a bag and hung over a sink to drain.
  1.  Unwrap and enjoy your cream cheese!
