I’ve never made cheese. I’ve never even really thought about making cheese – until now. Earlier this year I signed up for the Urban Farm Handbook Challenge. This month’s challenge – cheese making!
This recipe for Lemon Herb Cheese could not be more simple or delicious! The result is light, spreadable, herby goodness. It’s delightful and unlike anything you buy at the store. Have some friends over, serve it with sliced baguette and then tell them YOU MADE IT.
Soup to nuts, it takes about 2-3 hours, but most of that is draining time – you don’t have to be there. I took photos all along the way, you can check them out here. I picked herbs from my garden – basil, cilantro and parsley. I think minced green onions, thyme, or oregano would also be delicious.
Note ~ the only special equipment required are cheese cloth and a candy/oil thermometer, both of which are readily available at kitchen supply stores and some grocery stores. Don’t let that be the reason you pass this up!
