Recipes from the Medieval to the Victorian ages.


Sage and Spinach Cheese


Your curd must be prepared in the same manner as for common cheese, and squeeze as much of the juice out of sage and spinach as will give it a fine greenish colour.

Put it to the curd, with which it must be properly mixed, then put it into the mould, and press it in a moderate manner.

It will eat very agreeably at the expiration of about six months.
