Queso Fresco (Fresh Cheese)Make on Fresco
There are some things that just make you feel good. Making fresh cheese is one of those things for me. It is magical to see the curds and whey do their thing. Then to eat the delicious, creamy result, with tons of flavour thrown at it, truly the way I like to eat. Fresh, simple, home made and completely delicious. Go give it a whirl. (Not too much of a whirl, but a whirl, none the less!) Good luck.
(Oh and make sure you premake yourself a batch of the Nutty Seeded Crackers to go with it...you can thank me later!)
