Well, why share this delectable cheese with the children?! I discovered this recipe whilst at home in England - it was on a leaflet given out by the Lincolnshire Poacher Cheese company - I have made these twice now, and this is my slightly adapted recipe based on the original. A little bit of history about this superb English cheese.......Simon Jones, who started to make Lincolnshire Poacher, is the fourth generation to be running the farm, which has been in the family since 1917. It is situated on the edge of the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds about ten miles from the east coast. The lush pastures sit on chalky land, which enables him to have a successful dairy herd in an area where dairy farms are very scarce and cheesemaking is virtually unknown. This cheddar-like unpasteurized cheese is the Supreme Champion at the British Cheese Awards, and is buttery, smooth, and nutty in taste. The sharp flavour will linger on your palate. It is aged anywhere from 18-24 months.
