Cheese Base Recipe

2 C Cashews (soaked 3-6 hrs)

1C Water

1 t Probiotics

 

Mix in Vita Mix until creamy, be sure to watch consistency as you want it on the thicker side.

Place mixture into a chinois lined with cheese cloth. If you do not have a chinois a fine mesh colander will work as well.

Pour into Cheese Cloth and wrap edges over the top of the cheese. Finish by placing a weight on the top to release any excess moisture. Leave on counter in room temperature to ferment for 24 hours and NO longer than 48.
