In this video, you’ll see how to make fresh homemade cream cheese from yogurt. All you need is some cheesecloth, some salt, and yogurt. Chef John is using sheep’s milk yogurt here, but you can use regular cow’s milk yogurt, too. After a few days in the refrigerator, it comes out firmed and tightened up and looks and feels like cream cheese—and tastes even better, more flavorful, more tangy than commercial cream cheeses. And best of all, you did it yourself. Way to go DIY! Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Cream Cheese. Try it on a toasted bagel or serve it as an appetizer topped with honey and chopped pistachios. See more Chef John videos >>
