Story Behind this Recipe
In Japan, mascarpone is quite expensive to get in hold of. Well, mix some natural yogurt and heavy cream and drain. The result will taste very similar to mascarpone. Great for cooking or in desserts. Special Thanks goes to Satoyoko.
Make sure to use heavy cream that's not low in fat, and it will turn out quite similar to mascarpone cheese. Drain over 8 hours, and use it up fast.
