Pot Cheese is a white, soft, crumbly cheese. Pot Cheese is in between Cottage Cheese and Farmer Cheese. Cottage Cheese that has more of its whey drained off becomes Pot Cheese and Farmer Cheese is even drier than Pot Cheese. Pot Cheese is unaged, and should be eaten within a few days of making it.
Pot Cheese may be difficult to find in grocery stores, but it is one of the easier cheeses to make and can be made at home. The only specialty item you need is some cheese cloth.
