RECIPE BACKSTORY
YOU CAN HARDLY TASTE THE CHEESE. IT'S TART, BUT VERY GOOD, AND DIFFERENT. MAY BE FROZEN THIS RECIPE WAS MY GRANDMOTHERS. MY MOTHER MADE IT EVERY CHRISTMAS AS FAR BACK AS I CAN REMEMBER. WE WOULD HAVE IT CHRISTMAS MORNING WITH SLICED ORANGES THAT HAD POWDERED SUGAR ON TOP. THEN WE GOT TO OPEN OUR GIFTS. I DID THE SAME THROUGH THE YEARS. NOW MY DAUGHTERS AND GRANDAUGHTERS ARE KEEPING THE TRADITION ALIVE.
