Tis The Season for Good Cheese
Just a quick update on my cheeses.
1. The Cheddar
The Petit Fore is no more. I had to strip the wax from the cheese because of cracks in the wax. These cracks lead to mold forming under the wax. I have cleaned the cheese and vacuum sealed it. It is now resting comfortably in the cheese cave and being flipped once a week.
2. The Caerphilly
It turned out quite nice, though I was not to impressed with the chillies. I don’t know if I will ever put Chillies in a cheese again. It was crumbly and creamy just like a Caerphilly should be.

3. The Irish Dane (Guinness Washed Havarti)
It was suggested that this cheese technically could no longer be called a Havarti, it was more of a Trappist Style cheese. It was nice and stinky, a good stinky, and had a creamy texture that almost melts in your mouth when it is at room temperature. I love this cheese, and it will be made forever more.
|This is my lovely, lovely cheese. I can taste it now as I am typing this.
I am hoping to make some more before the baby comes, or even after it comes. I have some plans for the new year with my cheeses. I can’t share too many now, but you will know when I tell you.
Merry Christmas to all and to all Great Cheese!
