"I do not like yogurt in any shape or form, (just the fact its like off milk) but with some added ingredients I can get past my dislikes, although it will never be a favorite dish, my family love this. I found this on S.B.S. Caroline Eden and Eleanor Ford and it is quite easy to make and very similar to "Labneh". Great as a spread or a dip, just served on a platter or spooned into soups. If you want a thicker consistency, you can drain a little longer. NOTE: Start this a day or two before you want to serve. Makes 2 cups"

Season the yogurt with a generous pinch of salt
