Tasty To The Core – 8 Month Clothbound Cheddar – Sampling

Last month I wrote about my Clothbound Cheddar  and how it has aged.  This was the first time I have ever made a Clothbound Cheese and it has been an education.  I think I mentioned during the first post that I missed a step and that time would tell if it would be a problem.  At 8 months it was time to see if I have a success or failure on my hands, thankfully I have a Trier that my wife gave me last year for Christmas.

Plunging the Trier into the bandaging required some force

No Blue For You! Second Attempt At Making A Blue Cheese.

My last attempt at making a blue cheese was a success, well in the sense that I got a blue cheese, but it was a salt lick.  I wanted to make another, so I could “fix” my mistakes from the first batch.  I had received some new moulds and I wanted to use them to change things up a bit.

My Valençay moulds arrived.
