Yogurt Cheese Dip (and how to make Yogurt Cheese)

Based off a recipe of Sue Gregg’s

In large mixer bowl, mix:

Yogurt Cheese**
Cheddar Cheese, shredded–approximately same amount as Yogurt Cheese
Parsley Flakes, about 1/2 tsp per 2 cups of Cheeses
Garlic powder, about 1/2 tsp per 2 cups of Cheeses

While mixing sprinkle in some Worcestershire sauce, until dip is pale orange in color. Keep refrigerated. Also good spread on crackers.

** How to Make Yogurt Cheese
Place plain yogurt (about twice the amount of cheese you need for recipe) in center of square of doubled cheesecloth. Pull corners of cheesecloth to center and up to form a bag. Tie heavy thread or string around bag and hang above a bowl from cabinet knob. Allow whey to drip for about 24 hours. Don’t throw the whey away! Whey is good for fertilizer, baking-use as part of your moisture for yeast breads, and pre-soaking grains.
