Hi All! I found a recipe for "Seger" Cheese on the Berks County web site for Amish and local recipes. Its a cheese made with sour cream. After doing a little more research over the WEB, I could NOT find anything else about this particular cheese. I even wrote to an Amish Cheese company in Ohio and they've never heard of the cheese, either.
Has anyone ever made this cheese or eaten it? If so, please write back about it. It sounds like such an easy thing to make but it doesn't seem to be a very well-known cheese. On the Berks County page, it says that you eat the cheese with molasses or with jam. As I've never seen a cheese that you add something sweet to before you eat it, it caught my interest immediately.
Please let me know if you've had this cheese or even made this cheese. Thanks! AndeeInL.A.

Hi and welcome!
From what I have seen with the recipe I just posted and one I posted from Berks' web site, it is supposed to set up and become firm like bread pudding. I have made one similar to this that was called fried milk. It is a dessert, so yes, you would eat it with jam or molasses. I hope this helps! If you read the recipe carefully, it says the liquid is gone when it is ready to eat.
