Quark! It's fun to say...

I'd heard of the quarks in physics but not the kind that tastes yummy. Quark (or quarg) is a type of soft cheese traditionally made without using rennet (the stuff from a calf's stomach that is used to set cheeses).

Quarkfacts:

  • Quark is remarkably like yogurt - I can't tell the difference.

  • You can buy quark kefir - double bonus for microbial happiness.

  • You can use quark to make an amazing dressing - see below for my recipe.
