|This is after one week in the “cave”|
I have started to make my Christmas presents already, and of course it is another cheese. I tend to gift most of my cheese already, so this was a no-brainer. I decided that given the excellent reception of the the Guinness washed Havarti, of what my son and I have called the “Irish Dane”.
This time I used 18.9 Litres of 3.25% homogenized milk instead of the 14 Litres, and I used a pasta strainer insert as the mould for the cheese. It took about a day for the cheese to be ready for air drying. Then into the cave, and washing.
It should be ready for Christmas.
|Notice the wrinkles, they should help to trap some of the Guinness|
|Great Crevices of flavour|
|This is after the first application of Guinness, it has now been over a month and there has been many layers already|
This is just the beginning, of this journey on this cheese. Did I mention it is 8.5 inches across and 2.5 inches tall. There will be 16 lucky people on the receiving end of this gift. MTF
