We do not know when exactly we started to make cheese. Now, there is some evidence that cheese has been here for almost 7,000 years. There are pieces of pottery discovered near a river in Poland. These vessels have little holes poked in them like a modern day strainer.
Scientists have concluded that they were used to make cheese in the older times. These pieces of pottery were part of a bigger vessel that was probably used for separating curds from whey.
Peter Bogucki, an archaeologist at Princeton University had seen something similar earlier. A 19th century ceramic vessels pierced with holes at a friend’s house and was told that it was used to make cheese.
