natural, full fat fromage frais and cottage cheese

me again :O

Is it possible to buy natural cottage cheese and/or fromage frais anywhere that is not fat-free? M eats greek yoghurt or yeo valley natural yoghurt with fruit and sometimes has the plum baby fromage frais.
I have a few recipes that use cottage cheese but I cannot find any full fat stuff!!

Just wondered if anyone had ever found any?

I think it's because it's made with semi-skimmed milk and they label it 'low fat' as a selling point.…id=29&Itemid=52

This is the stuff I buy because it's creamy and doesn't have that acidic taste some have. It's labelled as 6g of fat per 100g and it seems that full fat milk is under 4% fat.... 8| so therefore it would be higher in fat than full fat milk ....iykwim :huh: I think...

Have you tried cottage cheeses with added creme fraiche? They do it in Asda and Morrisons, it's far nicer than the healthy stuff so more than likely contains more fat.
