Cottage cheese for the preparation of processed cheese can be taken by anyone, but the consistency of the finished product will depend on it. Cheese made from dry cottage cheese hardens more strongly and the result is a cross between melted and hard cheese. Soft curd cheese will be pasty and can be spread on a sandwich.

1. First, heat the milk almost to a boil over low heat. Put cottage cheese in it and, while gently stirring, keep it on the stove until the milk coagulates (yellowish whey is formed from the milk). Cottage cheese at the same time should turn into a sticky mass, which slightly reaches for a spoon.
