As I'm just having some quark for breakfast I was wondering if anyone eats it as well, as it does not seem to be as popular over here than in Germany. I like mine with a bit of sugar and some fruit like banana, strawberries or blueberries.

My mrs tried it once in a pasta dish as she's on slimming world and they thinks its better for you.

Lets just say, never again!

I have never used it for cooking, only for breakfast and deserts. Some people put it on their sandwiches but that's not for me. I need it a bit sweeter so I always put sugar in it

I do. Jindalee, try mixing it with salted caramel.

Also, the fat-free quark is amazing for a really light baked cheesecake.

Literatin, I started to think I am the only one. Glad there is someone else that sounds interesting. But where do I get salted caramel? Do you buy it like that or do you mix it yourself?

You can buy it in jars in France, but it can be quite hard to find in England. Mine is from a breton-style creperie (French people spread it on pancakes as well as stirring it into their fromage blanc). But if you can't get any you can make your own: http://www.recipegirl.com/2011/12/17/salted-caramel-sauce-printable-labels/

Edit: here's some.

Ah thanks literatin, Will have a look on the internet later. Otherwise might need to look into making my own, or persuade my french colleagues to get me some when they go back there on holiday

Oh, yeah, that'd be easiest. They can get it from Monoprix.

might need to bribe them, I will make them a cake if they get it for me

I thought it was the noise that Posh ducks made

I thought it was an elementary particle - I eat those all the time.

NO. I also refuse to eat any other Ferengi

Isn't quark an elementary particle?

It is a delicious yoghurt-like creamy cheese, and you lot don't know what you're missing.

It's not delicious, it's a bit yoghurt like and taste nothing like chesse. In fact it tastes of nothing. Just creamy nothingness. Total waste of money.

It is delicious. In a sort of nothingy way. The problem is you can mostly only get the fat-free version here, which is only good for cooking with. You need the proper hardcore full-fat stuff for real enjoyment.

No you don't! I eat low-fat quark, preferably the cherry, apricot or strawberry kinds, here in Germany you can get it with all sorts of fruit. Delicious for dessert. I also eat low-fat joghurt, for choice the chocolate flavoured one.

01/06/2013 at 19:27

Ah, I also eat full-fat yoghurt. Yum.

I agree that they have a much bigger variety in Germany but the low fat quark is ok for me. I like that it doesn't have much taste on its own so you can prepare it the way you like .Bought 3 more packs today, and some blueberries YUM!

Bionic ironwolf- you are in Germany? may I ask whereabouts? Sorry, for being nosy but as I am German myself I have to ask. I was born in M??nster, and also lived in D??sseldorf for about 6 years.
