I know. Midsummer solstice has passed already and I am a little late with this recipe. The good news is, it's great for the rest of the summer too! My Latvian mother used to make this every year for the solstice celebration in June. She would set a wheel of this out on the summer table, along with a big bowl of cherries and icy cold beer and we were ready to celebrate the longest day of the year. Don't be put off by cheese-making. This recipe is really easy. It makes a nice, fairly low-fat cheese that is great just plain, without crackers, or even better, as my mother used to do, spread with a little butter and sprinkled with salt.
- 8 ounces friendship farmer's cheese (5 packets)
- 6 eggs
- 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 stick unsalted butter (at room temperature)
- 3⅓ pints milk (1% fat)
