      Title: Chongos zamoranos (sweet cheese pudding in syrup)
 Categories: Mexican, Desserts
      Yield: 6 Servings
      1    2 quarts who milk
      4    Tablets rennet; finely
  1 3/4 c  Sugar
      1 tb Vanilla
      2    Cinnamon sticks (ea. 3 "
           -long); broken up
      2 c  Water or liquid from chongos
  In a 4 - 5 qt. pan, heat milk over low heat to 110F degrees.  Mix in
  rennet with cold water, 3/4 cup of the sugar and vanilla.  Stir
  thoroughly into milk.  Let stand at room temp until set.  (About 1
  hr.) With sharp knife, cut straight through mixture to bottom of pan
  creating a grid like pattern of 1 - 2 inch squares.  Set pan over
  lowest heat and cook, uncovered, until the chongs are white and
  tender-firm to the touch. (About 6 hrs.) Do not stir during this
  cooking time.  Check mixture occasionally to be sure it is not hot
  enough to cause motion in the pan, which will break up chongos. In 3
  ~ 4 qt. pan, combine cinnamon, remaining 1 cup sugar, and water (or
  use the chongos liquid carefully siphoned out of the pan and pouring
  through cheese cloth or paper-towel-lined sieve adding enough water
  to make 2 cups). Bring sugar/water mixture to a boil and cook,
  uncovered, for 5 minutes. Turn off heat. With a slotted spoon, gently
  transfer chongos to hot syrup.  Let stand until luckwarm or chill
  prior to serving. If made ahead, cover and refrigerate for up to 2
  weeks. To serve, spoon several chongos and some syrup into individual
  bowls. NOTES : Prep time- 25 minutes; Standing time- 1 hr; Cook time-
  6 hrs.
       Although cooking time is long for this dessert, once the initial
       prep time is complete (about 25 minutes) and you allow for the
       standing time, you then basically allow this 'pudding' to cook
       undisturbed for 6 hours so it's not an overall time consuming nor
       laborious task.
