Cheddar - Made 4-Nov-2012
« on: April 13, 2013, 11:35:32 PM »
I made a cheddar in November with grated and boiled Tumeric root to add colour. 
I used the New England Cheesemaking recipe - http://www.cheesemaking.com/store/pg/23-Cheddar.html except I could only get 21 kg on my simple press.

I was surprised at how good it tastes already, it has a nice bite to it and the salt balance is very good, although I thought the tumeric would have been noticeable I cannot detect it.
 
The only downside is that it is a little crumbly.

Nice looking cheese! The recipe is a bit different from mine on some timings. Curious how mine will turn out.
I hope to age mine a bit longer, I'm already aiming for Christmas...
