Cultured Cashew Cheese Aged 2 Months

I posted this picture on Facebook earlier today and was some questions, so I decided to put up a quick post regarding Cultured Cashew Cheese.   We used our homemade sauerkraut brine to culture this and nothing else.  It aged on the counter for 4 days, then we transferred it to the fridge and it's been doing it's magic, culturing for the last two months or so.  2 cups of cashews and 1/2 cup of brine.  Blended and there ya go.  The flavor is intense, sharp and lovely and we are pleased with the experiment.  This is just one nut cheese experiment we are/will be doing, so stay tuned for more!

  1. Great idea to use pickle brine. I've been using yoghurt, which works really well, but the brine is really intriguing. How do you not eat it for two whole months? Even with multiple batches, I keep "tasting" until it's all gone.

  2. PLEASE WATCH EARTHLINGS HERE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ce4DJh-L7Ys AND PLEASE WATCH GARY YOUROFSKY HERE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=es6U00LMmC4 and PLEASE go vegan it's better for us it's better for the animals and it's better for the planet that we live on and be careful sugar is not vegan because of the bone char just search online for vegan sugar brands or just call the company or e mail them and ask them if they use bone char and be careful with the products that contain sugar just read the ingredients btw evaporated cane juice is vegan

    1. im a pretty devout vegan but your quote on da vinci has been debunked a bit and cant seem to be proven. that quote seems to have been written by a author of fiction. the gary yourofsky videos are pretty moving though.
