What are the ingredients on these balls?

 

Goat Cheese

Creamy and distinct in flavour, goat cheese is a dairy product enjoyed around the world.

Goat cheese comes in a wide variety of flavours and textures, from soft and spreadable fresh cheese to salty, crumbly aged cheese.

Although it’s made using the same coagulation and separation process as cheese made from cow’s milk, goat cheese differs in nutrient content.

Additionally, goat cheese is digested differently than cow’s milk and is a hypoallergenic alternative for those allergic to cheese made from cow’s milk.

Walnuts

To say that walnuts are a nutritious food is a bit of an understatement.

Walnuts provide healthy fats, fibre, vitamins and minerals — and that’s just the beginning of how they may support your health.

In fact, there’s so much interest in this one nut that for the past 50 years, scientists and industry experts have gathered annually at the University of California, Davis, for a walnut conference discussing the latest walnut health research.

The most common variety of walnut is the English walnut, which is also the most studied type

Cranberry

Cranberries are a member of the heather family and related to blueberries, bilberries, and lingonberries.

The most commonly grown species is the North American cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon), but other types are found in nature.

Due to their very sharp and sour taste, cranberries are rarely eaten raw.

In fact, they’re most often consumed as juice, which is normally sweetened and blended with other fruit juices.

Other cranberry-based products include sauces, dried cranberries, and powders and extracts used in supplements.

Cranberries are rich in various healthy vitamins and plant compounds, some of which have been shown to be effective against urinary tract infections (UTIs).

The Ingredients

1 Pack of goat cheese

200grams of walnuts

100 grams of cranberries

2 Tbsp of honey

Parsley

The Method

Chop all the walnuts, the parsley and the cranberries. Place the goat cheese in a food processor and chop until it is smooth(only takes a few seconds as it is a soft cheese).

Add the walnuts, the parsley and the berries and blend it all together.

In a separate bowl mix some of the chopped cranberries, walnuts and parsley. These ones are to roll your truffles on it.

With the help of an ice cream spoon, form the little balls and drop into the mixture. Roll over until it is all covered and place in a board.Pt a whole walnut on the top and drizzle with a bit of honey.

Storing your truffles

They can be served straight away or you can keep them in the fridge for up to 4 days in a glass container.

Before serving again drizzle a bit of honey on the top.

Do not put in the fridge with the walnut on the top.
