This is a last minute addition to the Holiday feasts – a new friend at work shared a holiday tradition he holds dear with me yesterday and it simply sounded so good that we had to give it a whirl.
- Get yourself a piece of Stilton cheese
- Poke holes in it with a skewer. Do not poke all the way through.
- Pour port onto the surface until it is absorbed. Continue to do so until the cheese will take no more (he says he puts up to 2 ounces in a fairly typical piece). You are not trying to have the cheese swimming in port – you are trying to drown it from the inside.
- Place in fridge and wait a week.
By my calculations, If I buy the by cheese tomorrow I will be ready to go in time for the Holidays. We’ll update these posts (i.e. the duck prosciutto, infused booze and this) when they are all complete and eaten.
Short, easy and should be awesome! The drink pairing is also decidedly simple with this one!
Does anyone else marinate cheese with any different pairings of cheese and flavor? Would love to hear while there’s time!
