I love that Woodman's carries local products because I can support Clock Shadow Creamery without driving to Walker's Point. I also love Clock Shadow's cheese curds, which are also available at Woodman's.
According to a handout I picked up at the Eat Local Resource Fair, quark can be used in recipes that call for cream cheese, sour cream or ricotta. I tried it out this morning for breakfast on my favorite bagel from Bagels Forever (in Madison) and it was great!
More ideas from the handout on how to use quark include...
- crêpe and blintz filling
- mix in honey and dip with fruit
- vegetable and herb dips
- taco dip
- potato quark soup
- combined with mashed potatoes
Tonight, I plan to make pizza with a quark base, similar to a pizza I ordered at The Yard at The Iron Horse Hotel. Then I'll top the quark with ratatouille toppings, as inspired by my lunch yesterday...here's hoping it turns out!
