Delicious Dukkah Sunday January 10 2015

Last night when I decided to barbeque salmon coated in dukkah for dinner, I discovered my homemade dukkah jar was almost empty. Time to replenish it. My recipe is very easy. 
Dry roast:  1/4 cup sesame seeds, 1/4 cup coriander seeds, 1/8 cup cumin seeds. 
Grind and mix with 1/2 cup hazelnut or almond meal ( you could dry roast whole nuts and grind for a slightly different flavour), 1/8 teaspoon salt and a little bit of pepper. 

That's it! Great for coating fish or dipping into with some bread dipped in olive oil.

Reblochon Tuesday January 5th 2016

The Reblochon cheese which I made at the end of November last year is starting to get really stinky now. This is a washed rind cheese which has a particular bacteria in the mix, brevibacterium linens ,which gives the characteristic yellow rind. Washing with a weak salt solution every second day helps the rind to develop while the inside softens as it matures. We had some for Christmas but it was still a little young at that stage......this one will be ripe for eating in a coup,e of weeks. Luckily the smell is can natives within a plastic box in the cheese fridge!
