  • To thicken yogourt, line a sieve with a piece of cheesecloth or thick paper towels folded into 2 layers. Place over a bowl. Put yogourt on top of cheesecloth. Cover and leave at room temperature until most of liquid has drained and yogourt is thick, at least 3 hours, or overnight if refrigerated. Scrape yogourt into a bowl. Discard liquid.
