I recommend aging your cheese a couple weeks before you want to serve it. Age it that whole time. For the first 2 days, leave it on top of your fridge, then for the rest of the 2 weeks keep it sealed in the fridge. The day you want to serve it, warm it up in the oven or dehydrator to give it a firmer exterior and creamy center.

As for the type of nut to use, it depends on what you want. Cashews make a really creamy, smooth consistency. Almonds aren't so smooth, but they give it more texture and a different flavour. I can't afford pine nuts or macadamias, but apparently they're incredible for cheese.

hi! I made a cheese similar to this one for a pizza with pine nuts and nutritonal yeast herbs and lemon . Recipe said to store in fridge in cheese cloth for 2-5 days. I used a paper towel as i did not have a cheese cloth. Its been int he fride for more then 5 days, i would say its been in there for about a Week now. Is it still good to use? or should it have been covered in an airtight glass container?

THanks!

Jess

Sounds great & so easy. I have been buying nut cheese for several years, since going vegan, but it's pretty expensive. I'll have to try this! Thanks!

Is this a firm 'cheese'? I have attempted so many and they all end up more like a paste (and not particularly cheesy though I can live with that).
