Undoubtedly one of the simplest ways to enjoy cheese is on a cheeseboard. Whether rounding off a family meal or adding the perfect finishing touch when entertaining, but there are so many other ways to enjoy this versatile product. So with that is mind and the approach of Halloween,( no doubt you are wondering what to do with all the flesh that you have scraped out of your pumpkins! I knew you were!) Well, here is the ideal solution.( It’s more of a soup than a solution!!!) Cheese and Pumpkin soup. The cheese that I use, yes I have actually made it, is White Cheshire. It is mild but tangy and has a slightly salty taste and is perfect to cook with, and whilst there are lots of other ingredients in this recipe it is the cheese that is by far the most prominent flavour. You will need. 4oz white Cheshire cheese, crumbled. 2 peeled cloves of Garlic 10oz pumpkin chunks 1oz butter 1 pint water 1 onion diced 6oz sliced mushrooms 5fl oz single cream 3/4 pint milk Black pepper. Put water, pumpkin and garlic in a pan and bring to the boil, simmer until soft. Transfer to a liquidiser and puree, add cheese and blend again. return to the heat but don’t boil. In a separate pan melt butter and fry onion and mushrooms then stir in pumpkin puree, add milk and re heat add cream and heat gently. Season well. It is delicious if served with warm crusty bread. The soup can be frozen if need be, but before the milk and cream is added. No doubt other cheeses could be used but the tangy flavour that is only found in a good white Cheshire would be lost.
Being a cheshire girl i have grown up with cheshire cheese and i can't imagine living without it. MY favourite is the mature, coloured cheshire, its creamy yet also slightly bitter taste make cheshire cheese what it is....erm, creamy and erm bitter... Cheshire cheese is a nice, hard cheese, and comes in the white chedder version and also blue chedder, which when REALLY mature is at its peak. Aside from white stilton i would have to say that this is the best cheese that britain has to offer, yet also one of the most underrated, my advice is, try it. you'll love it.
