|It is not always easy to buy Quark. The closest equivalent I've found is kefir |
cheese, which can be found at some natural or health food stores. Or, you can
make your own, quite easily! Here is a recipe I found on a German website, with
my own notes.
(best for making Schichtkdse, which is used in baking recipes)
Start with 2 quarts buttermilk, as fresh as possible Pour into oven-safe
container with lid (I use a corningware cassarole) Let sit in oven overnight (at
least 8 hours), at 150 degrees (turn on oven just barely) Remove. Line a
colander with a clean cloth (I use a piece of an old white pillowcase), pour
quark in colander, let drain in fridge. If it drains too slowly, can fold cloth
over the top, and set a sealed tupperware bowl filled with water on top. To
use, can mix in a little milk until smooth. Wonderful with a little fructose,
and pureed fruit.
