The Best Sour Cream and Cottage Cheese Ever!
Poland has the best sour cream and cottage cheese I have ever eaten. Their sour cream is so rich, and creamy its like pudding. I remember taking palm sized sweet cheese filled pierogi (cooked and cooled) and dipping them into a wide mouthed jar of fresh homemade sour cream. Amazing!
Poles make cottage cheese 'homemade' by taking what they call their everyday white cheese (cooked curd) and adding sour cream to it. Well, basically this is how cottage cheese is made - at home or anywhere else.
The fact is, cottage cheese originated in eastern Europe. As it was then and is now, cottage cheese is a soft, cooked curd cheese. Unlike many other cheeses, cottage cheese is low in fat and carbohydrates but high in protein, making it a popular food among dieters. Its soft texture and relatively bland flavor also make it ideal for babies and young children. Cottage cheese can be easily prepared at home and will keep well in a refrigerator for up to one week.
