Lor Peyniri - you can get at any market

Or make your own from yoghurt. ))

750 gr Turkish yogurt, plain
1/2 tsp vinegar or lemon juice
If you like, a little bit salt

Pour the yogurt into the medium size pot and turn up heat over medium. When the top starts to bubble, wait 2-3 minutes, then add vinegar or lemon juice. Yogurt will be curdle, turn the heat off. Let it completely cool down at least 2-3 hours.

Place a strainer with cheese cloth on top over a bowl. Place the curdled yogurt on it. Turn around the top side of the cheese cloth tightly, strain. Leave in the fridge over a night or in a cold room. Wet the inside of the bowl and place the lor cheese in it. Keep it in the refrigerator.

Re: Ricotta cheese?

Sorry, but I don't think Lor is the same as Ricotta and I use them both. Lor is curd cheese.

My ex-partner, who is Italian, always used Lor when we lived in Turkey

Well I am not sure but all recipes suggest Lor in place of ricotta


"""Lor is a soft fresh cheese, a relative of the somewhat harder textured Ricotta of Italy and the Greek Myzithra and Anthotiro. """

The texture really, I'd no idea that they were basically the same! Ricotta is creamier I think, Lor more crumbly. I use Lor to make a veggie pasta dish with a fresh tomato and garlic sauce but I've never tried it to make sweet recipes.

Will definately give it a go!
