To make fresh Cheese in Cream.

Take a pottle of new Milk as it cometh from the Cow, and half a pound of blanched Almonds beaten very small, and make a thick Almond-milk, with a pint of Cream strained; and a little before you go to Dinner make it blood-warm, season it with a little Sugar, Rose- water, and searsed Ginger, and put to it a little Runner, and when it is scummed bread it up, and whey it, and put it into a Mould, and press it with your hand and when it is well wheyed put it into a Dish with Cream.
