Let’s Talk Cheese Please:

This beautiful board is simple, elegant, and delicious. We choose juicy blackberries sandwiched between aged gouda and either a raw aged cheddar or Spanish Manchego cheese for our skewers. Aged gouda tastes like a blend of cheese and caramel. Seriously, my favorite cheese on the planet! Aged cheddar is nice and sharp which is wonderful when combined with sweet blackberries. Manchego is a semi hard cheese made from sheep’s milk and can be found in almost any grocery store that carries speciality cheeses. NOTE: many aged cheeses taste amazing with berries. If you can’t find the three I suggest, feel free to try others. Fruits and cheese is always a winner!

Low Carb too!

This beautiful combination of fruit and cheese can be served as a simple appetizer or low carb/keto dessert. When we were in France recently we ate cheese and fruit for dessert every night. It’s a thing! And a really good thing. Give it a try after dinner instead of a traditional American sweet dessert, you may just be surprised at how much you love it!

The Recipe: Blackberry and Aged Cheese Skewers

What you need: skewers. We like these bamboo skewers with the knotted end. Gouda cheese can crumble so using a really thin skewer makes crumbling less likely. As always, you need a good knife!

    SUCH a beautiful and simple idea! I especially like it because I usually make a few more appetizers that take time, so it’s great to have one that’s easy but still super special. I haven’t eaten berries and cheese together but I bet it’s amazing. I need to give aged gouda another try.

    Oh. my. goodness. Gouda. My favorite cheese EVER! I’m totally drooling over this and trying to figure out how to make it and not have to share with all my kids… :p

    I love the setup and the blackberries with cheese. I think you have convinced me to have this with mint tea, even though it’s 100 degrees outside 🙂 Such a relaxing appetizer.
