The Cuisipro Yoghurt Strainer /Greek Yoghurt Maker / Cheese Maker has several names but is the singularly neatest way to create thicker Yoghurt or Labne. All the better for Tzatziki, or as a low fat substitute for cream cheese or sour cream.
Regular thin yoghurt is normally thickened by straining of the fluid (whey) through muslin cloth. Messy. The Cuisipro Yoghurt Cheese Maker strains neatly. It’s an airtight lidded plastic container with a removable wavy-bottomed fine metal mesh strainer. Cleverly, the wavy bottom increases surface area to let the yoghurt drain quicker. The container holds around three cups of yoghurt which can reduce to one cup.
The Cuisipro Yoghurt Drainer reduces regular yoghurt to dense yoghurt cheese in 12-24hours. It thickens yoghurt noticeably after two hours. Beautiful middle eastern Labne (Labneh) takes around eight hours *

*Confession : The Good Store’s in it for the labneh – infused with saffron and lemon zest then served with lamb…wondrous. Mixed with honey, rose water, pistachio nuts…heavenly. Get googling…
