Quark Cheese is commonly known as curd cheese. Quark cheese is soft, fresh cheeses made without rennet. Although traditionally made with cow milk, goat milk quark is every bit as appealing and useful.

Quark has a texture similar to that of a thick sour cream, and is most often used in baking. Its smooth texture and mild, tangy taste add lightness and moisture to baked goods. It is simple to make Quark at home from buttermilk.

It can also serve as a substitutes for ricotta in dishes such as lasagna, and as a base for dips and toppings. Alternatively, it can also substitutes in recipes that use sour cream, yogurt cheese or cream cheese.

How to make Quark Cheese

It will takes up to 48 hours before it is ready for your recipes, although the actual time that you will need to spend with it is about 10 minutes.

To make quark cheese, heat 1 quart of goat milk to 88 °F, and add 1 Tablespoon. buttermilk with active cultures. If your buttermilk is not quite fresh, you may want to add an extra tablespoon, as the culture activity declines over time.

Cover the pot, and leave it at room temperature for 24 hours. At the end of that time, the mixture should have a consistency very similar to yogurt.

Pour the mixture into a cheese cloth-lined colander. Either leave the cheese in the colander and cover, or tie the cheese cloth corners together over a wooden spoon or stick and hang over a pot.

Leave the cheese to drain for 12-24 hours in the refrigerator. Remove from the cheese cloth, place in a dish, and Enjoy! Normally, you will get about 8 oz. of cheese from 1 quart of milk.

Making sour cream is high on the list of  simple but delicious cultured goat milk products.  Only two ingredients are require  and 24 hours later you will be enjoying delicious, homemade sour cream for your baked potato, soups and casseroles, or other dishes.

To make sour cream, you will need:

  • 1 Cup  goat milk cream
  • 1 Tablespoon cultured buttermilk

Warm the cream to approximately 75° F. Add the buttermilk, and stir to mix thoroughly. Cover, and leave at room temperature for about 24 hours. Transfer to a storage container, refrigerate and serve. The sour cream will thicken as it cools.

If you’d like a heavier texture, you can use  a higher ratio of buttermilk to cream.

By using whole milk instead of cream, you can get the sour cream taste in a thinner version that is especially good for making cream-based soups.

Alternatively, you can also use a direct-set culture for making sour cream. This is a pre measured packet found at dairy supply companies that is mixed into the cream and left to culture. These generally produce a slightly tangier taste than using cultured buttermilk.
