Cheese yogurt is: cheese made from yogurt using the Euro Cuisine Yogurt Maker (or other yogurt maker) and a special cheese bag.
Make a batch of plain yogurt with your Yogurt Maker. It is important that you do not add any
gelatin to your mixture while preparing your mix to make yogurt.
After your yogurt is made, soak the cotton bag in boiling water for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove
the bag from the boiling water and place into a container.
Pour the yogurt into the cheese bag and close the opening by pulling the cord.
Hang this bag for 6-8 hours above the container to allow the yogurt to solidify. Make sure that the
yellowish liquid is dripping from the bag into the container, but the bag is not inside the container.
After 6-8 hours has passed, remove the cheese from the specially designed cotton bag and place it
in a container. You may add salt to taste while you stir slowly with a spoon or spatula.
Refrigerate the cheese. It is now ready to eat!
Instructions for Making Kefir Cheese
Making a “Farmer Style” Kefir Cheese
Make the kefir as instructed, but let the freshly made kefir remain at room temperature
several hours longer. Eventually the curds (milk protein) will separate from the whey.
Soak your specially designed cotton bag for cheese into boiling water for 1 to 2 minutes.
Removed the bag from boiling water and place into a container. Pour the yogurt from the
container into the above cheese bag and close the opening by pulling the cord.
Hang this bag for 6-8 hours above the container to allow the curds to solidify. Make
sure that the yellowish liquid is dripping from the bag into the container, but the bag is
not inside the container.
After the 6-8 hours has passed, remove the cheese from the specially designed cotton bag and
place it into a container. You may add salt to taste while you stir slowly with a spoon or spatula.
Store the kefir cheese in the refrigerator in a covered container for up to 1 week.
Note: Once the kefir is placed into the refrigerator for storage, the fermentation process is
inhibited. You cannot warm the kefir up to room temperature and successfully turn it into cheese.
Uses for Kefir and Yogurt Cheese
Kefir cheese is excellent when tossed into salads. It is also delicious flavored (by adding chopped
onions, garlic, sea salt, and/or fresh herbs) and served with an assortment of raw vegetables.
Uses for Kefir and Yogurt Whey
The yellowish whey liquid coming out of the yogurt or kefir contains many nutrients. It is generally
recommended that you add several tablespoons of whey, which contains micro-flora, to the soaking water
of grains before they are cooked. This makes them more digestible and releases the phytic acid.
You can also add it to recipes for sauces, dressings, condiments and dips, use it to make lacto-fermented
vegetables, and lacto-fermented drinks.
Whey is sold In Europe as a delicious beverage. Try sweetening it with stevia, fresh lemon or lime
juice, or try adding a non-alcoholic flavoring.
