Recipe for making homemade blue cheese. For detailed, illustrated instructions please view David B. Fankhauser Blue Cheese Making Page:
Neufchatel originated in Normandy France. It is a very soft, spreadable cheese similar to cream cheese. It differs from true cream cheese because it is made from whole milk and not cream. Neufchatel can be molded into many shapes and is traditionally molded in a heart shape. However, in North America it is more commonly found in a brick form. This cheese tastes great on a toasted bagel.
Recipe uses nettles for a natural thickener or use rennet tablets.
