Herbed Soft Kefir Cheese



When you have an abundance of kefir, this recipe provides a good way to use it up. It's also a good way to use over-cultured kefir that has a strong flavor. 



  1. Pour the milk kefir into a bowl lined with butter muslin, a cotton bag, or tight-weave cloth.
  2. Gather up corners of cloth and hang above bowl or jar and drain for 6-8 hours, or until the desired thickness is achieved. Save the whey in a closed container in the refrigerator.
  3. Mix herbs into the kefir cheese and refrigerate for 2+ hours to allow the flavors to meld. 
  4. Serve as a soft cheese spread on crackers or bread. Also makes a wonderful vegetable dip.
