Cynthia and David Major also played an important role in this wave of cheesemakers.  Emulating the system used by the Basque shepherds, David and Cynthia built an aging cellar and taught neighboring farmers to milk sheep and make cheese to the Vermont Shepherd Dairy’s specifications.  This project helped propel many small Vermont dairy families into the world of artisan cheesemaking.

Cultured butter is inoculated with buttermilk cultures, which results in a tangier flavor. Sweet butter is not cultured; look for the word “cultured” on the label. Many small regional dairies are starting to make and sell a cultured butter. Yogurt recipes come next, and for yogurt as well, the source matters. If you were to make yogurt at home, you wouldn’t add anything to it and it would likely be fairly thin. Commercial yogurts are usually thickened, typically with additives such as cornstarch or tapioca.

Stir in the honey, and serve warm. CHEF’S NOTE: Crush 2 cardamom pods and 3 black peppercorns together with a mortar and pestle before measuring.
