How to make a Wild Garlic and Thyme Cheese

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

This Wild Garlic and Thyme Cheese is a delightfully tasty spread, especially if you are a garlic fan. You may wish to experiment by substituting lemon thyme in place of wild thyme, yielding a refreshingly light tasting garlicy cheese.

3 finely chopped wild garlic leaves

1 T finely chopped wild thyme

Approximately 6 oz (¾ cup) milk cheese (made with 4 ½ cups milk—for the recipe see betweenclosefrineds.com)

2/3 cup heavy cream

salt & pepper, to taste

2 oz toasted coarse oatmeal

Beat the garlic leaves and thyme into the cheese. Whip the cream until it thickens and stir it into the cheese. Season well with salt and pepper. Form into two or three small cylinders and roll each in the golden toasted oatmeal. Serve on crackers, cruities, open-faced sandwiches, or with an assortment of cheeses on a cheese tray. Eat within 2 days.
