  3. Cook in the preheated oven for 2 hours and 15 minutes.
  4. Pour buttermilk mixture into the prepared colander; drain for 45 to 60 minutes. Transfer drained cheese to a bowl and beat with an electric hand mixer until smooth and creamy. Store in the refrigerator.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Do not use low-fat buttermilk. It will not work well.
  • Add some freshly cut chives, a couple cloves of minced garlic, onions, salt, and pepper for taste and you have a basic krauter(herbal) quark, a great spread right on your favorite bread or roll.
  • For cheesecake, let it drain a little longer.
  • It can be made using a yogurt maker, but this is an overnight procedure. This is a quicker way that yields pretty much the same product.
