Kaymak is a rich, creamy dairy product that is traditional in Bosnia. It’s classed here as a fresh cheese, but what it most closely resembles is English clotted cream. You can buy it either salted or sweet (meaning unsalted).
Kaymak famously accompanies cevapcici (ground beef sausage sandwiches; see my earlier post on this important topic) and the dough fritters called uštipci. With cevapcici, you’ll get the salted kaymak, with uštipci, the sweet. I have discovered that kaymak is also delicious with an omelette or as a spread for scones (like clotted cream). Actually it is probably delicious with just about anything.
You can buy mass-produced kaymak at the supermarket, but it’s so much better fresh and so widely available that I can’t imagine why anyone would buy it that way. I get ours at the Gradska Tržnica Markale meat and dairy market hall where the friendly cheese ladies always offer me tastes.
