The following recipe is from the Ceres Project’s “Nourishing Connections Cookbook”. Fresh and delicious because it’s made with Redwood Hill Farm Goat Milk Yogurt and Goat Milk Kefir, this dip pairs equally well with  crackers or crudite!


“Nourishing Connections Cookbook” is available!
We have a copy at Redwood Hill and I find myself picking it up often when looking to be inspired for a creative nourishing meal or from the heartwarming writing on improving my own diet. The links & resource section are wonderful as well.


Recipe: Making “Greek-style” Yogurt, or Yogurt Cheese

Written by Redwood Hill on . Posted in Recipes


Simple to do yourself in the kitchen

In many countries drained yogurt, called Lebneh, is served topped with olive oil and a mixture of spices called Zatar (available at many gourmet and Middle Eastern stores).

Strained or “Greek style” yogurt is easily made by simply draining plain yogurt creating a thicker consistency similar to sour cream.

This thicker yogurt may be used as you would sour cream or mayonnaise, as a dessert with berries and maple syrup, in smoothies and baked goods or as the base of a dip made with salsa or spices.The resulting yogurt can be used as a low calorie substitute for sour cream in dips, salad dressings or sauces. The slightly tart flavor adds a new zing to many recipes.
