Who moved my cheese ??

Well.. apparently I did.. Right after I made it ;)..

(I really hope you get my lame attempt at humor here)

Well anyway.. I made cheese.. at home! If you know me, you know I love cheese.. All kinds.. all sizes.. all shapes.. well.. I haven’t tried all.. but it’s really hard for me not to appreciate cheese.. 

So, What exactly is cheese ? According to Wiki, “Cheese is a generic term for a diverse group of milk-based food products. Cheese is produced in wide-ranging flavors, textures, and forms.”

So…..Apparently I like a diverse group of milk-based food products !.. Hmm.. Anyway, I made some cheese at home which turned out to be fantastic! Tangy and crumbly to the knife almost like feta but still spreadable.. Do try this at home and let me know what you all think.. 

3 Easy steps;

1. Empty out an 8 Oz. container of unflavored Greek yogurt in a muslin cloth. Squeeze and tie the cloth in a bundle over a bowl. Store in the refrigerator.
2. Squeeze and drain every 6-8 hrs for 2-3 days. Store in the refrigerator.. (Yes, Cheese making is a process)
3. 3rd day, open the cloth and you will get a solidified piece of cheese. Break them gently into bite size pieces. Store in some Extra virgin Olive oil flavored with sun dried tomatoes, smashed garlic, salt and parsley. 

Enjoy with crackers, flat breads, pita points or with a spoon!
