So you can make Quark

Not long ago I bought a Crockpot Express Multi-Cooker *. Then I made my fist quark, which can be seen in this video with English subtitles. It is not much work and the results are awsome.

See for your self in this video! (with Englis subtitles)

To make Quark you can use the Instant Pot *too.

A liter of buttermilk makes about 12 OZ / 300 g quark.

You only need buttermilk and a Crock Pot Express Multi-Cooker/Instant Pot and coffee filter or a cheese cloth. As a residual product you also get whey.


Instructions to make Quark

  1. Put at least 1 Liter buttermilk in the Crockpot Express/Instant Pot
  2. Close cover with steam release on open
  3. Klick the yogurt button and start
  4. Prepare filters in bowls with cheese cloth or coffee filter (filter must be in the bowl so that the whey can drip)
  5. After 8 hours this is ready
  6. Gently pour the mass into the preparation filter and let stand 8-10 hours in the refrigerator
  7. Quark is ready

  1. Stefanie, vielen Dank fuer das Quark Rezept. Ich leben schon seit vielen Jahren in Canada und habe auch oft versucht Quark herzustellen aber es hat nie so gut geschmeckt wie in Bayern. Mein deutscher Kaesekuchen ist mir nie so gut gelungen wie in Deutschland… Ich werde mir demnaechst Buttermilk holen und in meinem COSORI Dampfkochtopf versuchen. Vielen Dank nochmals!

  2. Hallo!
    Kurse Frage. Muss die Buttermich im IP erst kochen, oder wird dieser Schritt übersprungen und gleich auf 8h eingestellt. Geht leider aus dem Rezept nicht hervor. Danke!!!!
