Easy and delicious this cream cheese requires no fancy cheese cultures or cooking, just a little rennet that you can pickup from your co-op. Actual prep time is under 30 minutes total. The rest is all unattended. Sweet!
My recipe for labneh - also known as yogurt cheese - is a cross between a thick fromage frais and fromage blanc. It is of Lebanese origin and very simple to make. It is simply yogurt strained with a bit of salt to remove the whey - delicious.
Blue cheese is one of those preserved foods that even home preservers are hesitant to try making themselves. The main ingredients are deceptively basic – milk, culture, rennet. Then comes the penicillin mold. Stinky good, I say.
