Brigid's Fresh Herbed Cheese

Blessed be. I wanted to share a really good recipe with you all. I hope that you will all enjoy it. It is really good.


Brigid's Fresh Herbed Cheese


4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup any fresh herbs, minced
(blend any--rosemary, chives, dill, parsley, sage, thyme, chervil,etc)
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup heavy cream
8 oz. small-curd cottage cheese


Make a paste with garlic, salt, and herbs. Beat the cream cheese until fluffy and, while beating, add first the creams and then the cottage cheese. Beat in the herbs until well blended.

Line a colander with 2 layers of cheesecloth and spoon in cheese. Knot opposite corners and suspend over a bowl to drain for 24 hours (or hang over the faucet to drip in the sink). Retie as needed to compact the cheese. Remove to a plate, seam side down, and chill until serving time.

You can also roll the cheese in fresh minced herbs for added beauty and taste.

Serve with water crackers.

Blessed be and thank you.

I did stop by your page. I think I posted a comment, but I cannot remember. I have so many people listed in my favorites that I am going to have to start keeping a scorecard on who's blog I comment on! LOL!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you here more often.

I have another blog topic posted about chakras as well. Just take a look in the labels.

Have a great week.

OH, the cheese sounds so yummy. I will need to try it out sometime. I may not drink milk, but I am a big cheese fan.

I have been having a blast visiting the links on your page. I could not believe that the WLPA was still around. It was one of the first Wiccan/Pagan sites I visited back in 97. Thank you so much for having all of the linkie luv.

You are welcome. Thank you for stopping by and posting. I am glad that you like the site.

I am working on labeling all the posts in the correct catagory now.

So if you want to look up related articles in that particular label, just click onto it and search from there.

Have a great week.

This really is a great tasting recipe.

I actually made this once last year during Mabon for my Wiccan book club, and served it with wheat thins and fresh fruit.

Needless to say, all the other ladies went home with the recipe!

Have a great weekend.
