So Recipe

So is a type of dairy product that has been made since ancient times. There are various theories on how it is made, but it is said to be "made by boiling down milk and curdling it. The process of boiling down a large amount of milk for a long time is time-consuming, so only a limited number of people, such as royalty and aristocrats, were allowed to eat it. Originally, it was eaten as a medicine.

Completed!

The mixing process alone took about 2.5 to 3 hours, so it takes about 6 hours in total to complete. I brought it to a boil over high heat at first, but some recipes call for boiling over very low heat from start to finish. In the latter case, it may take even longer.

How does "So" taste?

The aroma is quite close to that of cheese, and when you put a knife into it, the smell increases slightly. First, take a bite as it is. The texture is like a hard cottage cheese. It is sticky and sticks to your teeth when you bite into it. The richness of the milk is strong, with a subtle sweetness that spreads softly. I was surprised at how sweet it can be with just milk, even without sugar.

Slightly sweet and cheese-like

The flavor is too light to eat on its own. It has a gentle taste at best, and a blurred impression at worst. There may be different tastes.

The En-Eat staff who ate the plain Su also had different opinions.

Staff A : The more you chew, the sweeter it tastes.
Staff B : The more you chew, the sweeter it tastes.
Staff C : If asked if they would like to eat it again,......, hmm.
Staff D : It is hard to say it is good or bad, it is a subtle Line

and opinions were divided. The thin taste may be insufficient for those who are used to modern seasonings.

So, we decided to add seasonings to the dish and compare them. We used three kinds of seasonings: honey, black pepper, and salt. As a result, the most popular was salt! When eaten with more salt sprinkled on it, the gentle sweetness and saltiness combined to transform it into a rich cheese-like flavor. Looks like a good snack!
