52 New Recipes: Week 3 - Labneh

I saw a recipe for homemade labneh in a recent issue of Cooking Light.  I used homemade yogurt and following the directions.  I have no idea what went wrong (homemade yogurt maybe?), but it never thickened up at all.  I ended up tossing the whole soupy mess.

This week was a complete fail.  Unfortunately some recipes are like that.  When something goes wrong, I do prefer to try to find out why - my error or recipe error.

Has anyone made labneh?  I noticed all other recipes online say to mix the salt with the yogurt before spooning into the cheesecloth.  Perhaps that was the problem.  I may try this again with the salt added at the beginning.
