Hi everyone! Welcome back to legourmet.tv. So three days from now, I am going to do a really cool baked apple dessert, and something that I like to have with it is this yogurt cheese, and it's a maple flavored yogurt cheese, dead simple to make. It just takes a little bit of pre-planning and a little bit of time in the fridge. So you take about two cups of plain unsweetened, unflavored yogurt, and this is just a Balkan style yogurt, really nice to work with. So about two cups and then maple syrup, let's say maybe 6 tablespoons, I don't measure, I, just sort of, put it in, you can't have too much maple syrup I think. So about 6 tablespoons and then you just stir it together, get it all well and incorporated, great! So what I've got here is four layers of cheesecloth over top of a strainer, over top of a bowl. So you just put your cheesecloth, kind of, in the middle of the strainer, and then pour your yogurt mixture into it. Now, gathered it up and just, sort of, twist it off. Now some people hang it over the bowl. I use the strainer and effectively what you want to do is just keep the cheese out of a liquid that's going to come out of it, that's going to drip into the bowl.
So put that like that and over the course of three days in the fridge, a lot of liquid is going to come out, the cheese is going to become really nice and firm. So I am going to put this in the fridge and we'll come back to it later. Okay, so this has been in the fridge now for three days and periodically, I just take the liquid that's in the bottom of the bowl, and just pour it out, you don't need it. Just carefully unwrap your cheesecloth, and you have a wonderful lump of maple flavored yogurt cheese; absolutely wonderful! Finger licking good. This is great with the fruit tray, it's great with baked apples or poached pears, any fruit combination. Now I've done this as a sweet with maple syrup, you could do exactly the same thing savory, using your favorite herbs and use it as a vegetable dip or even a chip dip if you wanted to. Take this recipe, make it at your own, give it a shot hope you enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.
