Kaymak, kajmak, kaimak also geymar, gaimar, is a creamy dairy product, similar to clotted cream, made in the Balkans - Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Iraq, Turkey, the Middle East, Central Asia, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and India. It is made from the milk of water buffalos in the East or of cows in the West.
The traditional method of making kaymak is to boil the milk slowly, then simmer it for two hours over a very low heat. After the heat source is shut off, the cream is skimmed and left to chill (and mildly ferment) for several hours or days. Kaymak has a high percentage of milk fat, typically about 60%. It has a thick, creamy consistency (not entirely compact due to milk protein fibers) and a rich taste.

Kaymak was very popular in Turkey and shops were devoted to its production and consumption for centuries, as evidenced by a 1573 prohibition against women's presence in the kaymak shops. Kaymak is mainly consumed today for breakfast along with the traditional Turkish breakfast. Though kaymak has declined in popularity in modern Turkish cuisine, compared to previous years, one of the better types of kaymak is still to be found in the Afyonkarahisar region where the water buffalo are fed from the residue of poppy seeds pressed for oil. Kaymak can also describe the creamy foam in the traditional "black" Turkish coffee. Kaymak is traditionally eaten with pastries, preserves or honey or as a filling in pancakes. Kaymak or qymaq in Afghanistan is used as an accompaniment to flatbread, naan, or for the tea drinking on special occasions, qymak chai which is green tea with baking soda, milk and kajmak as a topping. In Iran, the words qhaymaqh and Sarshir are both used to name this type of cream. In Iraq, it is called Gaimar or Qaimar and very popular for breakfast with fresh bread, honey or jam and hot tea. Two sources to buy Gaimar in Iraq, factory produced or local vendors (farmers) who are commonly named Arab, Arbans or Maadaan and thus its referred to as Gaimar Arab or Gaimar Maadan as of farmers Gaimar.
