    Kitchen Dictionary: cottage cheese

    A fresh cheese made from whole, part-skimmed or skimmed pasteurized cow's milk. Sweet curd cottage cheese (the most popular) has a mild, sometimes bland flavor because the curds are washed to remove most of the cheese's natural acidity. The texture is usually quite moist. If the curds are allowed to drain longer, pot cheese is formed; longer yet and firm farmer's cheese is created. Cottage cheese comes in three varieties: small-curd, medium-curd and large-curd, sometimes called popcorn cottage cheese. Creamed cottage cheese has more cream added. Cottage cheese is available plain and flavored, the most popular additives being chives or pineapple.


    Season: available year-round

    How to store: Keep in the coldest part of the refrigerator up to 10 days past the stamped sell by date.
