    Take a look at this recipe:
    http://www.food.com/recipe/smashed-veggie-cheese-sandwiches-432327

    If you click the Farmer cheese link in the recipe it takes you to our definition of the product, which is like a dry cottage cheese. It is often used in cheese cakes or blintzes. That is the type I am most familiar with too living in NY. However in many other parts of the country Farmer cheese refers to a solid semi soft cheese similar to a Mozzarella or Gouda, that can be sliced and melts and could even be used in a grilled cheese sandwich. I believe that is what is called for in the above recipe. The link to the definition we have would confuse people..

    Thanks! I took a look at the description and it does mention that Farmer Cheese is "dry enough to be sliced" and it does mention it can be sliced in sandwiches. I am not certain what else could be added?

    Mary, I'm not suggesting an addition to her recipe description, but rather an addition to Food.com.'s Glossary. There are 2 very different cheeses that go by the same name and our glossary only accounts for the cottage cheese type. The recipe was only one example. There are many recipes in the database that call for Farmer cheese in a cheesecake. You could never put the slicing kind in one, yet we have no alternate meaning listed. The slicing one is not a dryer form of the cottage cheese type. It's a different cheese all together.

    I'm talking this:

    VS This:

    They are 2 unrelated cheeses with the same name and our Glossary should address that icon_smile.gif
