Yummy! Home-made herb cream cheese
Blogger Janina tried YULA out for us and conjured up something delightful with the herbs - here is the recipe:
- 1 kg (2.2 lbs) plain yoghurt, 3.5 or 10% fat
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 bunch of your favourite herbs, pepper
Work the salt into the finely chopped garlic to form a paste. Add yoghurt and stir thoroughly. Now put the yoghurt in a clean cheesecloth (or dishtowel) and in a strainer and place this on top of a large bowl. Store in refrigerator for around 24 hours to ensure that enough liquid is strained. Now wash the herbs, finely chop them and stir them into the prepared cream cheese. You can store the mixture in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for several days.
Dry or freeze herbs?
Dry highly aromatic herbs such as oregano, rosemary, peppermint or sage. The best method is to take the freshly picked herbs and place them on packing paper or crepe paper and let them dry in a warm place. Or hang herbs such as lavender from the ceiling like small bouquets. By the way, it can take up to 10 days until the herbs are bone dry - do not store them until then!
Some herbs are better suited for freezing because they lose their flavour when dried. This is true for all herbs that have a light, fleeting character or pungent flavours such as basil, parsley, chives or dill. Simply chop freshly picked herbs and store them in a resealable freezer bag in your freezer.
