How to Make Cream cheese
Make sure you line at least 6 layers of cheesecloth over a bowl.
Let the sides of the cheesecloth hang from the sides of the bowl.
Pour in the yogurt.
Tie the bundle tightly and hang it inside the bowl.
Let it drain for about 24 hours inside the refrigerator.
Keep checking the liquid level; keep removing constantly if it starts exceeding the edges of the bowl.
Unwrap the cheesecloth and place the cream cheese in a bowl.
Sprinkle it with salt and keep mixing until smoothness and consistency is achieved.
Take a different bowl and add 4 thin layers of cheesecloth.
Smooth the top of the cream cheese.
Make sure you have the cheese properly wrapped up using a plastic wrap.
Take a heavy object and use it to press down upon one side of the cream cheese wrapped up.
Refrigerate the press for about 2 days.
Carefully unwrap it after 2 days.
Serve it or keep in inside the plastic wrap to store for later.
