Goji Berry and Pistachio Cheese Ball

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. This is an "open-ended" recipe which means you will adjust the amount of cheese and other ingredients so that the mixture can be shaped into a ball and then decorated to resemble an apple. A combination of cheeses is a great idea, as well.

1 - 2 cups shredded cheese, such as Cheddar, Cotswald, Jack...
2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
2-3 tablespoons goji berries, diced a bit if necessary
2-3 tablespoons pistachios
1 whole clove
1 whole bay leaf
more goji berries and pistachios, for sprinkling
crackers and slices of bread for serving

Grate the cheese finely, using your food processor or a grater. Combine cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, berries and pistachios. Shape into a ball, adding enough cheese or mayonnaise to hold it together. Place on serving platter, sprinkle with paprika and then tuck the clove into the top and arrange the bay leaf to resemble an apple with stem and leaf. Sprinkle with more diced berries and nuts. Arrange crackers or slices or bread and serve with a small cheese spreader or knife.
