Amish Cottage Cheese

Linda Kauppinen


This is an old recipe that calls for raw milk and NOT store bought milk. NOTE: Only persons with access to fresh raw milk will be able to use this recipe.
(For those asking what is raw milk, it is the milk fresh from the cow before it gets taken away for processing to be sold in stores.)
