Quark

German for “fresh curd,” quark is a fresh soft cheese that is similar to a cross between sour cream and cream cheese.  Quark was the first cheese that Jack made when he started the cheese manufacturing company in 1984.  Quark is wonderful for baking in cheesecakes, lasagnas, and quiche.  It is also delicious in dips, spreads, and as a topping on soups and tacos.
