Cheese Base Recipe
2 C Cashews (soaked 3-6 hrs)
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.
Cheese is ready. You could also use Macadamia or Almonds for your base. Take cheese base out of cheese cloth transfer into a bowl and add:
3/4 t Sea Salt
