I am always looking for ways to use the kefir I make. You can strain the liquid kefir to make a yogurt or strain it further to make a cream-cheese.But I ran across many many posts in Lithuanian blogs for a different way to make a creamy ricotta-like cheese. I loved the result - I am still playing around with it, but I think it would work instead of ricotta in many recipes. I make whole milk kefir and your yield will depend on the butterfat content of the milk you start with - the higher the butterfat, the more cheese you will have. Lowfat kefir will make less cheese. And don't discard the whey - use it instead of milk or water in pancakes, quick breads, etc. Or use to water your plants. We loved it just plain spread on wholegrain rye bread, topped with a slice of avocado for me.
