Nancy's Cottage Cheese
Cottage cheese is the ultimate dairy food for me. When I first saw Nancy's at the market, I wasn't just taken in by the whimsical packaging, I was intrigued by the promise that it was made the old-fashioned way. So I bought it and now I'm hooked. This cottage cheese was all I'd hoped for and more. Ridiculously creamy, with luscious curds--I checked the label more than once to make sure it was low fat. But the best thing about the taste was its tanginess. It has the character of the dairy I remember from my childhood.
And there's more good news. Nancy's products, from the Springfield Creamery of Eugene, Oregon, are all made in the most responsible way. They source their milk from small family farms and always test to be sure there are no antibiotics or hormones, synthetic or otherwise, used. The rennetless (vegetarians take note) cottage cheese, organic or natural, has live probiotics and cultures that offer a myriad of health benefits, including improving calcium absorption and lactose intolerance.
