Recipe: Any-Old-Cheese Ball


1/2 lb. firmer cheese
1/2 lb. softer cheese
2 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup liquid - cream, white wine, brandy, ???
1/2 cup ground nuts, shredded fresh herbs or what-have-you
salt, pepper & hot peppers to taste


Remove inedible bits from cheese (plastic, wax, rind, paper, etc.). Whizz cheeses & garlic in food processor. Add liquid as needed to create a firm yet smooth, creamy spread. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired. Scrape cheese out on to parchment paper and chill until it can be shaped into a ball. Roll in nuts or herbs and refrigerate. Best if removed from fridge 1/2 hour before serving.
