Cheese and Honey

This is cheese and honey:



It is a very simple dessert to make:

1)  Place a slice of cheese in a bowl.
2)  Drizzle honey over it.
3)  Eat.

In this case, made with some homemade cheese (English Farmhouse).

I love this dessert and everything that it promises.  It is simple.  It is something that can be made partially - or completely by one's self (my chances of getting a dairy producer are pretty low, but my chances of getting a bee hive are much higher). And being in the power to make, it is completely with my power to generate.

This is the sort of thing that warms my heart the most and makes me feel the most proud of doing things for myself:  small things that I can do and then benefit from.  It is the core of gardening or homesteading or indeed simply preparing for a disaster and then finding that one has prepared wisely.  Can there be any better feeling?

Thank you. The nice part about cheese making is that there are so many kinds there is always something else to try or get more skilled it.

The honey will come. I just have to get a few things in line.
