Ok, I know there’s a couple folks who read this who COOK, where as I CAN cook, but am generally much happier following a recipe (there are exceptions to that, but not many). Once I know a recipe reasonably well I’ll play with it, but I gotta have that start.
So, I want to make my own cheese spread. Why? Cause a really GOOD cheese spread is hard to get sometimes, and the rest kinda suck. The BEST cheese spread I can get locally I have to go rather out of my way for and it costs more than the rest (of course), its worth it, but its still money and time spent that gets annoying when I want cheese spread.
So I went looking for recipes. I’m gonna link to three, there’s lots more, but these three seem to be reasonably good examples of what I’m seeing:
So. The are some rather significant differences here, and I’m bit stumped as to which I’m likely to want to try. They all call for butter, but one also calls for sour cream. One calls for white wine (but notes that if you only have water that’ll work), the others don’t call for any liquid. The amounts I’m less worried about (though there’s some significant differences there too), I’m capable of adding bit by bit till I get the texture I want, and I can figure out flavorings myself, but does anyone have any ideas as to which recipe might be a better choice (or at least WHY this one calls for sour cream, and that one white wine….), or do you have a recipe to share that you’ve already tried?
