Sheepishly good! (sorry...)


Goats and sheep cheese are becoming more popular in Ireland of late, but they have always been staples here. Sheep do better on these sheer slopes, and there is little grass land to do a dairy cow any justice at all. So the majority of local cheese is made from sheep milk, artisan produce, all at a reasonable price too. Ricotta can be delivered to your door every morning for barely 50c, and in the supermarket a hunk of mature sheep milk cheese with a texture similar to cheddar, but pale as stone, will be barely €2...
Bad news for cheesies like myself and Bill, oh but the nightmares are worth it though!!

Thankfully I remembered the membrillo...
