Hanging yogurt is a great way to thicken it and to create an even richer consistency.
The liquid yogurt whey can be reserved to use in cocktails or anywhere you'd like an acidic kick.
Put a fine mesh sieve over a bowl and cover it with a clean kitchen towel
Add 500 g of plain, unsweetened yogurt and bunch the towel together
Tie the kitchen towel in a bundle with a rubber band
Place in the refrigerator for 8h to drain. The hung yogurt is ready
Season with salt to taste if you’d like, and enjoy it with some olive oil and freshly baked bread!
