For Mother’s Day last Sunday, I made a scrumptious breakfast for a couple of the moms in my life. I had a variety of bagels with cream cheese, fresh strawberries, thickcut hardwood smoked bacon, coffee with fun creamers, fresh squeezed mimosas, and another fun addition: Dairyland Farmers with Strawberry Balsamic Reduction.
Not everything I post will be my own recipe or creation. As the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” and sometimes you just roll with the wheel that’s already been invented. In this case, it’s a wheel of cheese…
Lately, I’ve been visiting our local farmer’s market to peruse their goodies. One of my favorite vendors is Chapel Hill Creamery, out of Chapel Hill, NC. They sell an amazing selection of cheeses (as well as pork and beef), and my latest craving has been for their Dairyland Farmers Cheese. As described on their website, this cheese is made with pasteurized milk and is a fresh, moist cheese with a clean, vibrant flavor and tangy hint of citrus.
At their booth, they had the balsamic reduction recipe printed out for this cheese. It said something about “An Adult Dessert.” Ummm, okay! So, I made it for Mother’s Day. It was such an instant hit that I shared my success on Chapel Hill Creamery’s Facebook page and they were thrilled to get the great feedback.
If you’re local, I highly recommend checking out this farm’s amazing products. If you’re not, you can find Farmer’s Cheese blends in many fun stores like Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Wegman’s, etc. Then you, too, can whip up a tasty treat for the special people in your own life…or just for yourself!
