turn yogurt into cheese?

Long time ago I was told that it's probably to make cheese from cheap yogurt with warm water but I don't remember the tricks exactly. As far as i can remember, the jewish family who showed me this put some packaged yogurt into warm water and left there overnight. On the other day, they said they're going to use it to make some desserts but i left a day earlier.

Do you know what this cheese is like exactly and how i can make it?

  1. All you need to do to make yogurt cheese is drain your yogurt overnight using cheesecloth, coffee filter or a colander lined with paper towels. The resulting solid is called labneh and can be used like cream cheese.
