    I know this must have been discussed before, but I have gone back to the last week's threads and cant see one anywhere.

    What I want to know is, what do you do with Quark?

    I bought some today and had a little taste, it wasnt as bad as I was worried it might be, but it still needed something. What do you put with it to make it taste a little nicer? I dont mean big recipes eg cheesecake, but more is there anything I can put with it so if i am to eat it as it is it will be slightly nicer tasting. I have tasted worse though, but if i forced myself to eat too much of it I will probably give up and it will go to waste.

    Thanks

    Mix in sweetner to taste. I usually do 2 tbsp quark to 2 tsp sweetner, great with fruit. If I feel naughty for 3 sins I have meringue with fruit and sweetened quark.

    I usually use mine as a syn-free substitute for butter or margerine on sandwiches or on ryvitas. It gives the moist taste so feels I'm having mayo but also I get a slight cheese taste so get to save my HEA!

    I mix mine with fruit & sweetner & put on scanbran.

    Or mix with tuna instead of using mayo.

    Using it as a mayo substitute is a good idea! Does it taste nice? Do you put vinigar in the tuna still?

    It doesn't have a strong taste. It's like philadelphia without the cheese! That's why it works as a sweet treat too, although I've never had it sweet.

    It's creamy, and the one I get from Morrisons is pretty smooth (I'm sure I 've had one that was like cottage cheese from somewhere).

    Used this this afternoon as my 'mayo' on a lettuce, spring onion, ham and beetroot butty. Very nice!
