This one is cheating a little – since I knew about this cheese for the last few months — but I was extremely happy to see the Labne from Karoun Dairies (beware cheesy flash website!) take first place in the cultured milk product category. I love this tart, creamy, kefir cheese. My pantry – I just counted – has ten empty Karoun Labne containers in it as I write this. I have been going through more than one a week for most of the last few months!
I love it for breakfast with berries and our bulk, dark honey. For lack of a better description, it’s like a less rich and dense, more tart, cream cheese.
