Labne, small hand-rolled balls of drained yoghurt cheese, are available from Middle Eastern grocers. To make your own labne, drain yoghurt in a muslin-lined sieve for at least 24 hours or until firm, then roll into walnut-sized balls. Roll labne in herbs or spices to serve or store in a jar with infused oil in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
