    Good Haha. Thought it was me. My leader made a Baileys cheesecake with it and it tasted like paste. Ewwwwww. And sorry for this but it looks like some kind of poor hygiene female discharge Haha x

    I have bought some this week for the first time, but I don't know what to make or do with it.

    I might regret buying it if it taste horrible.

    I just dont like the sour taste of it when trying to make something sweet out of it like a pud. I find the sour and sweet thing together not to my taste at all. Could eat it on savoury dishes though.

    I think maybe that you might be missing the point of it somewhat. It is a base for other flavours. It takes on the flavour of whatever you cook it with, so provides a good sauce base, or works well as an ingredient.

    Do not be influenced by what you are reading here. Try it for yourself first.

    I dislike it on it's own but find it is one of my best SW friends when I am using it as the vehicle for other things.

    I use it to make fabulous tasting dips by adding a tablespoonful of sweet chili sauce, a tablespoonful of branston pickle etc. and eat it with strips of red pepper, cucumber, apple, carrot. I mix it with diced beetroot and onion to put in a baked potato or with a salad. Mix it with tuna and diced onion. I put it in home made soups to make them creamy or add vanilla essence and a sugar substitute and have it on top of strawberries.

    There are endless things you can do with quark so give it a try.



    hear, hear !!!!!!!!

    No one implied that the title of the thread was anything other than what it is.

    In your opening post you just state that you hate quark.

    I think MadamlaMinx and I were only trying to help.

    I know I only wanted to help kathrynmc as it is her first try.

    I respect the fact that you do not like the taste or the texture of quark. I was really only suggesting ways anyone who hasn't tried it could use it.

    I love Quark! Have been known to mix it with honey and have it in the morning with my banana when I've run out of 0% yogurt - yum yum! It's delicious with an Options stirred through too xx

    Not all Quark is the same. There are a few different manufacturers. I get mine from Waitrose, and it has no taste at all, but is brilliant for flavouring with sweet or savoury things.

    I'm with some of the others on here, in that it tastes of nothing whatsoever, so I couldn't eat it on its own. But that makes it so versatile for combining with other things.
