Cheese


Tristan made our second attempt at hard cheese. It's been over a month in the making, from the initial clabbering, draining, and pressing, to the aging at a particular temperature, coating it with olive oil to prevent mold...This cheese turned out to be so delicious. It smells like parmesan but tastes like a mild cheddar with a waxier texture. Maybe next we'll make a 5lb wheel and have cheese out the wazoo!

that looks absolutely delish!

i'm so glad the MAKE:blog linked to you -- now i've found instructions for making all sorts of cheese, and seen examples of "normal" people doing it. i don't feel intimidated by dairy! YAY!
