    Regarding recipe #119809, We live in Southern Mississippi. Where in the world do you get "Quark"? I grew up in Germany and have not found a good substitute for this type of cheese. Farmers cheese is much too dry! I think that maybe the closest is Ricotta. Quark in Germany
    is purchased in a block. It is somewhat firm, but not like cream cheese which is much too rich, and not like cottage cheese which is too moist and curdely( is that a word?LOL) My mother used to make a wonderful cheese cake with Quark, but I have never been succesful in duplicating it. Anyone out there has found a solution? thanks for your input. Ingrid ( I am new to this Great site) icon_biggrin.gif

    Have you tried draining yoghurt to make "cheese"? If you buy yoghurt that doesn't have thickeners and leaves some "whey" (liquidy stuff) when you scoop out a spoonful and leave it for a little while, you can scoop some yoghurt into a coffee filter or cloth filter and set it over a bowl and let it strain overnight in the fridge.

    I made my own using this recipe... It was delicious.. I never heard of Quark before this. I did have to order the rennet on line ( )because couldn't find it here in town. But it wasn't expensive.

    Raisin Apricot Quarkcake recipe #116411 by Cathleen Colbert. This is the finished quark and you can make it as wet or dry as you like...

    I just discovered today that Whole Foods sells Quark. I think Trader Joe's does as well. Of course, I don't know if either of these markets is accessible to you. icon_cry.gif
