The almond cheese ball recipe is from the Festival Cookbook.
I didn't make a ball, but a long thin log.
Ease of making.... super easy
Taste.... nice, not wow though
I would be happy to make it again, but make a few changes
HINT: it makes a log about 35cm long! 1/2 the recipe if you are not going to have a heap of people turning up
HINT: there was too much almond! Alright, I ground them down into a flour because I don't like chunky nuts... but WAY too much. if you are going to do that... 1/2 the amount
HINT: there was not enough cracked pepper - not very peppery for MY taste, make sure you check that it is ok for you before adding any more.
HINT: next time... I'm going to use SMOKED almonds. How nice would that be!! That would really add to the flavour!!
HINT: if you aren't using smoked almonds - add something else to the cheese mix - a garlic clove? some smoked salmon? some more cracked pepper? Small tin of tomato/tuna?
