Greek Yogurt Labneh with Candied Ginger and Honey

I love different kind of cheese, either its Mozzarella or ricotta or mascarpone or cheddar or feta..My least favorite is paneer, somehow I am just done with paneer and since we have so many different kind of cheese why just stick to Indian cottage cheese and not tried rest? So I made ricotta , mascarpone at home now its time to make Labneh at home. Labneh is a strained yogurt cheese from Lebanon, it can be savory, sweet too. I made simple labneh and I flavor with orange blossom honey and candied ginger. Only trick is you need whole fat greek yogurt  , don't even think about fat free or 2% yogurt. It's not going to give you same texture, After straining it will be like blank canvas, you can add your flavor. to make savory add, any herbs ,garlic and olive oil and have it with pita chips. It's so light and fluffy  just like cloud. I made it sweet with orange blossom honey and my candied ginger.

Until now I never saw any Indian blogger make this cheese, but now I am pretty sure everyone will jump with their own creation to make this, am I right or not? people just don't do their own research love to do copy -paste. Anyway I did this first so I am happy. Enjoy this delicious spread as cheese or as dessert.

Ingredients :

2 cups Whole fat greek yogurt
2-3 tbsp. orange blossom honey or regular honey and add orange zest.
2 big Candied Ginger, chopped very thin

Method :

Line a large sieve with cheesecloth,

Set over a medium deep bowl. Place yogurt in sieve.
Gather edges of cheesecloth to cover yogurt.
Place in refrigerator and let drain for 24 hours.
Transfer the cheese to a serving dish, cover and keep in fridge till ready to serve.






If you like, add herbs and make a balls and preserve in olive oil.
To make it sweet, add honey and candied ginger in cheese and chill it and enjoy it after dinner as dessert or as it it.
