I am all for crackers and cheese, one of my favourite snacks ... but what type of cheese?
And can cheese be home made?

Post your recipes and suggestions/comments here, please.

Any kind of cheese!
And of Course cheese can be home made. I've made it myself (not v. successfully but that was my lack of knowledge, not the art). I made "bag" cheese and curd cheese.

Here's a simple snack or party biscuit, on a budget:

1 Packet oat Digestive Biscuits
1 Packet Cream Style Cheese (I use Lidl's cheapie own-brand)
Runny honey

Spread the biscuits with the cream cheese and drizzle honey in an attractive swirl. So tasty!

Last home-made cheese I made was Paneer, which is easy peasy lemon squeezy!

2 litres full fat milk
Juice of one lemon
Large piece cheesecloth

Scald the milk. When it just starts to simmer, add the lemon juice and stir until it curdles. Turn off the heat. Scoop the solids into the cheesecloth and hang until it stops dripping (about an hour).

DO NOT throw away the whey; use it in soup!

After the paneer has drained for about an hour, press under a weight (a couple of large tins will do) for thirty minutes. Use in palak paneer or similar.

You could add fresh herbs to the curd to change up the flavour.
