Ingredients
Labneh from this recipe
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp dried spearmint
1/2 tsp Aleppo pepper or chili flakes
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
Olive oil, to taste

Directions
Put your cloth lined colander and bowl into the fridge overnight (after you’ve let it drain for 12-24 hours. Make sure there is enough room in the bowl to catch the liquid. We don’t want a mess in your fridge. The next day, remove the yogurt from the cheesecloth into a clean bowl. It should be firm enough to form somewhat decent balls at this point. If not, drain it more. Mix in the cumin, spearmint, pepper and sea salt. To serve, fill a shallow bowl with about 1/8″ of olive oil. Grease your hands and form balls a bit smaller than a golf ball. Arrange in the dish, and garnish with roughly chopped parsley or cilantro.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
