Israeli Cottage cheese with grapes in syrup

First things first. They call them raisins in syrup but they are actually grapes in syrup. I can prove it.

In order to something to be called a raisin it must abide by the following conditions:

1) They have to be sad
2) They have to be evil
3) They have to be hated by me
4) They have to able to be classified as “sad and evil sweet dried olives”

They fail on the third item. So, they are not raisins but grapes. Q.E.D.

Those grapes in syrup where sitting in the corner of the breakfast buffet in the first day. I happen to notice them and taste them. Sweet but not overpowering something of a cinnamon taste, a slightly earthy taste somewhat remembering me of England’s Golden syrup.

Since they were close to the croissants there was no clue as to what they were originally supposed to be eaten with.

Oh I Can’t Believe It Is Spoiled Milk

Enter the yogurt section of the breakfast table. Yeah section. Yogurt, Greek yogurt in two textures, yogurt with sesame seeds, pink yogurt and here is the big winner Israeli Cottage Cheese. Israeli really love their milk products. BTW that’s not counting the cheese section of the buffet

Israeli Cottage Cheese looks like cottage cheese, but with flavor, better consistency (not rubbery at all). Also It was very neutral in the savory aspect.

Just add the grapes in syrup and give a little stir.. breakfast heaven
