Farmer’s Cheese Liptauer Spread

This week, check out an Oliver’s exclusive straight from from Valley Ford Cheese and Creamery: their wonderfully light and creamy Farmer’s Cheese! This spread made from farmer’s cheese is a traditional Slavik dish popular in Austria and Hungary; it’s loaded with sweet paprika, briney capers, and pungent caraway seeds. Try it as a delicious dip with crackers or spread it on some dark bread for an afternoon snack!
