DIY “Homemade Quark Cheese”

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.

  • 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.
