I just tried the Mountain House freeze dried cottage cheese and I'm in love. You heard me correctly. Mountain House freeze dries cottage cheese! It’s pretty impressive.
In the past, dehydrated and freeze dried milk products have gotten a bad rap. (Except Emergency Essentials' dehydrated milk products, of course. They get rave reviews.) So I set the bar really low for what I thought would be some freeze dried cottage cheese malarkey.
It’s no malarkey folks! Freeze dried cottage cheese is… well, good!
It’s easy to get excited about this Mountain House product. When the freeze dried cottage cheese is rehydrated it looks like cottage cheese (not some pulpy mess) and it feels like cottage cheese (not a glop of white stuff).
The texture and flavor are both spot on. Individual curds stand on their own and are firm and chewy, just like curds ought to be. The saltiness of cottage cheese comes through, too. I followed the instructions on the can; after 15 minutes I added a little more water because I like a little more liquid in my cottage cheese.
You might not have considered adding cottage cheese to your food storage because it seems like such a luxury item, but now you can! Plus, if you buy 6 or more cans of this freeze dried Mountain House food storage you’ll get 25% off your purchase (sale ends today).
Little Miss Muffet couldn’t be more pleased than I am. Now, if only I could find a tuffet to sit on…
