Pot Cheese is a soft, fresh cheese.
It is basically a higher-fat, slightly salty pressed dry cottage cheese with large curds, sold in small tubs or pots. It has a neutral taste.
It can be hard to find in stores now. You may find pressed dry cottage cheese these days that is also labelled “pot style.”
Pressed dry cottage cheese, preferably a higher-fat one. Not regular cottage cheese or ricotta (both would be too moist).
