    Cathleen Colbert's Note:

    One of the most popular cheeses in German is quark. Despite what your physics teacher told you, quark is not just a subatomic particle, it is a fresh, low fat cheese similar to ricotta, cream cheese or cottage cheese. It is very easy to make at home. If you use yogurt to make your quark, make sure it has active cultures and no gelatin. You can find rennet with the gelatin in the market. Kids love making their own cheese! Prep time includes time to make cheese.

      Everyone said I should rate this higher then a 5 but alas.... It was such fun making my own cheese.. The only suggestion that was made was to add a little cinnamon perhaps... I may try that next time. Great recipe.. thanks
