    Cottage Cheese

    I seem to recall a while ago that posters ( and me) were moaning about the unavailability of decent cottage cheese here in the LOS.

    Today I had a pleasant surprise .
    TOPS had Yoghurt sized pots of FOURMOST cottage cheese for 34 baht so I tried some.

    It is OK - can be enhanced by some chopped chives before you put it on your crackers - but the nearest thing to real cottage cheese I have found here yet !

    PS. Just for info - I don't work for FOURMOST !!

    Can't understand why you haven't been able to buy it, Makro and Tops here in udon have stocked it in the 4 yrs I have been up here.

    Now that you can get good natural yogurts, its easy to make at home for yourself.

    Creamed cottage cheese? A favourite. A little S&P, paprika and chives or sliced cuke. Yum.

    I love cottage cheese. I sprinkle just a little of "Johnny's Doc" on it, and yes chives add a nice tinge of flavor to it.

    Cottage cheese also has casein, a slow metabolizing protein, making it a good late-night snack, if you daily caloric intake is low enough.

    cottage cheese is rank. if i was the ruler of the world I would have snipers watching the people that buy it and taking them out in the car park. survival of the fittest.

    Easy enough to make your own. I've done it a few times with good results.

    For those with a kitchen and milk and lemon juice.... simple really... no need to go without. This shows from raw milk to cottage (Farmer) cheese, to cream cheese to smoked barrel cheese.

    Couln't be much simpler




    One thing about cheese making is the absolute need to use sterilized equipment and utensils!!

    I've only ever seen it in the single-serving plastic pots. Was next to the sour cream and the yoghurt.

    I make sour cream just like I make yogurt. Add a half container of sour cream to 2 litre of fresh milk and let it sit out in room temp. heat for 8 to 10 hours. It is great for making pancakes or corn bread.
