    afyon kaymak

    by traveloturc Written Aug 30, 2007

    Kaymak is a creamy dairy product, similar to clotted cream, made all over the Middle East, Southeast Europe, Iran, Afghanistan, India and Turkey. It is made from the milk of water buffalos in the East or of cows in the West.
    The traditional method of making kaymak is to boil the milk slowly, then simmer it for two hours over a very low heat. After the heat source is shut off, the cream is skimmed and left to chill (and mildly ferment) for several hours or days. It has a high percentage of milk fat, typically about 60%. It has a thick, creamy consistency (not entirely compact due to milk protein fibers) and a rich, mildly sour taste (depending on how long it matured).The best one is made from the milk of water buffalos ( Manda)..In this city the process is a little different than the rest of the country..

It can be more or less spicy; it is fairly salty and has a high fat content.Europeans use to eat it cooked but this is not a must and you have to try it without cooking
