No, this isn't in fact my go at a sculpture of the original cover of The Female Eunuch, but CHEESE! I thought it'd be fun to make labna. That's labna, yes.

It's an Arabic yogurt cheese, basically. You take 2kg of yogurt(!), the rind and juice of a lemon, 75ml of olive oil, a sprig or two of thyme, a larger amount of chopped mint, a tablespoon of salt, mush it all together then shove it in a feminist leotard as above, and let it drip for *two whole days*.

I love things like this, where you have to live with something for two days before it's ready.

Then you roll up the cheese into little balls and shove it all in a jar of olive oil. I think I might put a few more sprigs of thyme and mint in the jar too. YUM. The oil can then be used in breadmaking.

I wish I could think of a use for the gunk that's dripping into the bowl. Any ideas?
