Whipped cottage cheese? Uses?
When I went to the store the other day, they were out of my usual cottage cheese, so I grabbed a different brand. Got it home and realized it was "whipped cottage cheese." It's advertised as "Spreadable!" on the case.
I've never heard of this. Somewhat confused, I tried eating it -- but it's all mushy. Why would anyone buy this? Is it meant to be eaten on its own, or is it supposed to be used in cooking? And, more importantly, what can I do with it before it goes bad? Thanks for any suggestions...
Ah, ok. I did think that it seemed like a ricotta substitute, as I was spooning it out. So, I will go from there.
It's also interesting to know that this isn't something new -- apparently I've been living under a rock for the past 30 years, because I'd never noticed this product or heard of it before!
