Many Thanks for the "yogurt strainer" tip, NELL. I'll have to shop for it - or better yet, put it on my Wish List!

I've never had tofu that required straining, but I have pressed it between two layers of kitchen towels, with an iron frying pan on top.

Thank you. I'll look for it.
Do you think it will also work with tofu? There are many tofu recipes that recomend straining it first.

Mimi, I got mine from a kitchen store at the mall some years back, but it's small. If you google "yogurt strainer" you'll find a bunch. The Donvier looks good, I think I might even get one.

The other alternative is several folds of cheesecloth in a regular strainer, but it's messy.

I use mine all the time. Any recipe that calls for folding in yogurt, I strain it first. The volume is, of course, reduced, but the result is creamier.

What is a yogurt strainer? How do you do it?
That's a great idea because Fage greek yogurt costs almost double than any ff plain yogurt. I wonder if it will taste as good as the fage yogurt.
I would like to try your method.

Thank you

Mimi

If you want to thicken regular yogurt, hang it in a yogurt strainer. I do it all the time. I think it's called yogurt cheese because the consistency goes from creamy to almost like thick sour cream.

I never heard of Fage or greek yogurt. We do not have a Trader Joe's either, so I will check my local stores and see what I can find. Thanks for the information.

Actually, Trader Joe's carries their own brand of greek yogurt. They also have the Fage, which is the brand that's mostly out there. Trader Joe's is just as good as the Fage and a bit cheaper too.

As for where can you find it? I've seen it in the organic section of a local store here. I guess you could always look where they keep the regular yogurts or better yet...ask the dairy manager. The article suggests that Trader Joes is a good place to get it as well. I think next time I go shopping I may buy some and give it a try!

I was wondering myself what Greek Yogurt was so I looked it up. Here's a link explaining what it is:

Donna, you'll love it. I find the greek yogurt less tart and firmer. If I can spare the calories I also add some chopped pecans to my berries, yogurt and honey.

I've never tried the Greek yogurt, but these days I am trying things I never have - so I'll give it a go. :) I love yogurt, and eat it often already.
