Description

A dairy product, remaining fresh the longest of all dairy products is cheese. Nowadays, it is also made from goat and cow milk. A considerable number of cheese production were invented in Lithuania, two of which are the most popular – made of sour and sweet milk. A bit laterer is a second way, when whole milk was heated on a mild fire, and then filled with the same amount of curdled milk. The curdled mass was poured into a cheese-bag, drained and pressed. Sweet cheese was eaten fresh or slightly dried - they did not have a long shelf life.
