hey folks.
have an old (published 1954) jewish holiday cookbook my 90-year-old grandmother recently gave me. there are several references to pot cheese. i assumed it was cottage cheese or cream cheese, then noticed several other references to those other two as well. Any guesses as to what the pot cheese is? One reference is in a cheesecake recipe (which i'd always made mostly with creamcheese). Is it ricotta maybe?
