Fromage Forte - odds and ends cheese spread

We love cheese, and it's way too expensive to waste. I invented this to use up all those bits and pieces of cheese that accumulate in the fridge. After I "invented" this, I saw Jacques Pepin make almost the same thing! I stole the idea of adding brandy from Jacques. This will keep covered in the fridge for a couple more weeks.

Special equipment-food processor or blender

All your leftover cheese, trimmed of any mold and cut into chunks
1 small garlic clove
Splash of brandy and/ or a splash of white wine
Splash of worcertershire sauce
Good pinch of cayenne pepper

Start by grinding any of the hard cheeses, then add the garlic and other cheeses. Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth. Add more brandy or wine to achieve a smooth, spreadable consistency.  Place in crocks, cover and refrigerate.
