The following is a list of different ways to season your cheese to mix things up a bit. I hope one or more will be a hit for you.

Borusin: place basic cheese in a blender and add garlic, thyme and salt

Cream Cheese: place in a blender and add cream or milk

Ricotta: place in a blender and add a pinch of nutmeg and a little cream or milk

Desert Topping: place in a blender and add a pinch of nutmeg, cream, sugar, vanilla

Pie Filling: Same as above adjust ingredients to taste; add chocolate, fruit, or use your imagination

Cheesecake: add ½ cup of Amaretto to milk and proceed with basic vinegar cheese recipe
