  • The meaning of "Cheesecloth" in various phrases and sentences

    1. Meanings of words and phrases
    2. Cheesecloth is a loosely woven cotton cloth, that can be used in making jellies or jams or otherwise in cooking, as a kind of filter. It’s open-weaved enough to let all the juices or liquids one wants through, while keeping all the solids (berries, onions, whatever) inside the bag of cheesecloth. I suspect the name is from a time when there were no metal sieves or colanders, and this cloth would like one separate the liquid out of cheese curds or whey, while keeping the solids inside the bag.
