Cottage cheese is not ordinarily related to boycotts, but in the summer of 2011, that generated by the Elite business was boycotted in Israel due to its high price, compared to its cost in the US. Elite is an Israeli company, so it didn’t seem fair that the purchase price of its cottage cheese was higher in Israel than it was in other countries. The boycott was successful and the price was eventually lowered.
From the Indian subcontinent cottage cheese or’paneer’ is used in many savoury dishes, also goes well in a spicy dish with spinach. It is used to tame the hot spices used in traditional dishes, and these are extremely tasty.
Little Miss Muffet was clearly greedy and impatient. She sat on her”tuffet, eating her curds and whey” which are the precursors of cottage cheese. If she had waited a little longer she might not have had that traumatic encounter with the spider.
Cottage cheese is made by curdling pasteurized milk and draining most of the liquid or whey, so the only the curds are left in squishy lumps. You can curdle the milk with lemon juice, and make it from low-fat milk, so that it has fewer calories.
This type of cheese has been made for millennia and was created by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans.

According to a USFDA report, Americans purchase around 600 million pounds in weight of cottage cheese annually, although I suppose that doesn’t mean that they eat all that as it doesn’t have a lengthy shelf-life. It’s worth noting though that it takes a hundred pounds (pounds ) of milk to create only fifteen pounds of cottage cheese.
It seems to be a favorite food, although I can’t say I am a great fan, unless it’s mixed into sweet pancakes or a spicy meat dish, as it tastes bland to me. However, it’s this that makes it so flexible.
