Have you ever wanted to make cheese? Not a cheese ball, mind you. I’m talking about honest-to-goodness homemade cheese.
Thankfully, you can. And it’s easy.
The simplest methods of cheese-making produce soft cream cheeses, so that’s what I’m showing you today — a simple yogurt cream cheese, jazzed up with pumpkin and spices just in time for holiday festivities.
It’s delectable served over sprouted-whole grain toast, or it can be served as a dip with apples.
YUM. Now let’s make some cheese!
