A-Z Blog Challenge: Q

Quark: 
Quark simply means curd in German - so this is definitely 'good stuff', delicious in fact! Soft, white, un-ripened, cow's milk cheese with the texture and flavour of sour cream. Low-fat quark has a richer texture than low-fat sour cream and a milder flavour and richer texture than low-fat yoghurt.

Rose's Sweet n' Spicy Dip 

  • 380gm Quark - available from The Cheese Barn
  • Sweet Chilli sauce - The Squeezable bottle makes my life easier. Use enough for your personal taste
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika 
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun Seasoning - available from most supermarkets
  • finely diced spring onion  for additional flavour
Method:
  • Combine together in a bowl, saving some spring onions back for a garnish
  • Spoon into small dip bowls, top with garnish and place in fridge. 
  • Best to make this a few hours in advance so the flavours meld together and taste is enhanced. 
  • Stir once before serving to loosen, and serve with dipping platter of various things - corn chips, chips, carrot sticks, celery sticks.... they all work brilliant with this dip.
