Kefir Cheese Ball

This is one of the best cheese balls you will ever have. We have this all the time for a quick snack or take to a party. I have even stuffed this cheese inside dates, celery or mini red peppers. Serving it with spouted or sourdough crackers makes a yummy appetizer or a fun after school snack. Make sure you drain the kefir cheese for longer to make the cheese firmer. I like to strain it another day to get it extra firm.
