"This is so expensive to buy in the supermarkets, so have made my own a few times now. This cheese is great to serve on a platter with crackers or melba toasts. Very much like the fruit cheese you buy in the supermarket. Great tasting and easy to make. Preparation time includes the chilling and soaking."
