Anne has been to Central Europe since I last posted a Liptauer recipe and she of course encountered there much Liptauer. That gave her a good idea what she was aiming at in making her own. So I post below the recipe she used with great success on a recent occasion

Cream the following together in a bowl until well blended:

* 4 oz. of Lipto cheese -OR- if you cannot buy Lipto you can substitute 4 oz. cream cheese -OR- 4 oz. Feta cheese (Anne used Danish Feta)

* 1/2 cup soft butter

* 3 Tbs. thick sour cream

* 1 tsp. capers and add to bowl with cheese mixture

Add the following to cheese mixture and blend ingredients thoroughly

* 1 Tbs. grated onion

* 1 Tbs. prepared mustard

* 1 1/2 teas. Sweet Hungarian Paprika

* 1/2 tsp. Caraway seeds smashed or bruised to release flavor

Shape into a smooth mound and make slight indentations in mound with tines of a fork. Sprinkle with Paprika. Let flavors mingle in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving. Letting it stand overnight is even better. Serve over Hungarian salami on rye bread with chopped green capsicum (Bell peppers) on top. Goes well with beer.

Makes 1 3/4 cups of spread.


Disclaimer:The recipes here have been collected from various sources over the years and I have lost track of where most of them came from. If anybody believes that I have "stolen" their recipe, however, I will be happy to add an acknowldgement of the original source. To my knowledge, however, most of the recipes here do contain SOME element of originality. The element of originality, however, comes mostly from my ex-wife Jenny rather than from myself.
