Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon refined coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (1 clove)
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

  2. Transfer mixture to a cheesecloth, shape into a ball and twist closed over the handle of a wooden spoon.
  3. Set cheeseball/spoon over a bowl, making sure there is plenty of air space around the cheesecloth.
