Richard Nixon, 37th U.S. president (1969-1974) usually had cottage cheese and a pineapple ring for lunch. He had the cottage cheese flown in from Knudsen's Dairy in Los Angeles.
It takes 100 pounds of milk to make 15 pounds of cottage cheese.
Cottage cheese is the fresh drained curds of slightly soured, low fat pasteurized milk. When the curds are drained, the cheese is called cottage cheese; allow the curds to drain longer and it is called pot cheese. Press the remaining moisture out so it becomes drier and crumbly, and it is called farmer's cheese.
