German for "fresh curd," quark is fresh and slightly drained cow's milk cheese similar to old fashioned cream cheese. It's made from fresh, local milk and whipped with a trace of crème fraiche. It has a low butterfat content and smooth texture making it a great base for fluffy cheesecakes and mousse. Top with cereal or granola for breakfast, mix with mashed potatoes, or blend with fresh berries. Use any way you would use sour cream or cottage cheese.
