      What a great recipe, and sooo easy to make! Our local German Deli only sells Quark at Christmas so I was looking for an authentic recipe for Quark, called Topfen in Austria, which is a staple in Austrian cooking. I started with one gallon of Milk and added the juce of one small lemon, than let it do it's work over night. I followed the instructions for warming the milk, using a thermometer. The final product is a silky smooth, wonderfully creamy quark that tastes slightly tangy. I can't wait to use it in a recipe! Thanks, Mia, for posting! Made and reviewed for the "Not only Sauerkraut and Dumpling" event.
      Since my last review I got interested in cheese making. I bought the book 'Artisan Cheese Making At Home" by Mary Karlin and learned a few important things:
      Do NOT use ULTRA - PASTEURIZED milk or cream, it will not work! Pasteurized and homogenized milk can be used but it needs more acid or calcium chloride (available on line - for the milk to properly separate into curds. This goes also for yoghurt, ricotta and other cultured milk products.

      I have never heard of quark, but when I read its uses, I had to make it. Very good, and has so many uses. I am sure I will be making this often.Thanks, Mia!

      I'm sorry... I really wanted this to work for me. I was excited to make cheese from milk and lemon juice. Sometimes I have been on a yeast/mold free diet and some forms of rennent and culturing is not allowed for that. I saw the review by gemini08 about the milk and but others seemed to have it work. I tried to find not Ultra-pasteurized and was surprised at how prevalent it was. I found some organic milk and didn't see until it was too late that it WAS ultra. Tried it anyways and only ended up with lemony milk. Tried again, this time found milk that was pasteurized but not homogenized so pretty close to the original. I added fresh squeezed lemon. Overnight I couldn't tell if anything was happening so added more lemon. Next day decided to try it, it seemed sour but not curdled at all. Raised temp as directed and no curds were formed. It also didn't taste sour after all so it must not have don the right thing in the beginning. I contacted the chef who said she uses pasteurized milk. Either my lemon wasn't strong enough or I didn't cook it long enough at the right temperature. Someday I may try again.

      Am looking forward to trying this recipe and comparing the results to another recipe I found on this site. I love learning how to "make at home" things which one usually thinks are impossible to duplicate in the home kitchen - and often find that the homemade version is by far superior. (A very favorite cookbook of mine is "Better than Store-Bought" and I have made many things from that invaluable book - but there's no quark recipe in it.
