It’s the final push to use up the post Christmas bits and bobs, despite our kitchen clear out of a few weeks ago. I’m making headway through the chicken stock glacier but there was still a pesky piece of White Stilton in the fridge that winked at me every time I opened the door.
I was actually looking for some Lancashire cheese or a piece of Wensleydale when I bought it – something that would work well with a slice of Christmas Cake – but it wasn’t to be, so I went for the White Stilton in the absence of anything better. And in fact, anything would have been better.
I added it into the mix with every ‘picnic’ meal over the festive season but soon we’d all realised that, on its own, it just wasn’t very nice at all.
So, inspired by the thought of the cheese that I will buy instead next time, ‘White Stilton with Apricots’ – these White Stilton and Apricot Scones were born. In my opinion, this was THE best way to eat this particular piece of White Stilton … perhaps any piece of White Stilton come to think of it….
