Greek Yogurt = Lebneh?

James G | Mar 23, 2003 07:39 AM

I was noticing on my little tub of Greek yogurt, procured at Trader Joe's the other day, that it says "Greek strained yogurt". This, to me, is what lebneh is--yogurt that has been strained in a cheesecloth for a time to remove a lot of the water. Is this the case? If so, can't I just make my own with Dannon's, or is the base yogurt sufficiently different to warrant buying the Greek stuff?
