Even a blind squirrel can find a nut!
I have to say, I have been throwing away makes like crazy lately. All my cheeses are coming out blah tasting, over dry, inedible. Of the couple OK
cheeses I have made, none of them seem to fit a specific cheese profile. They resemble "homemade" cheese, for a lack of better words.
BUT, this one, made 12/24/12, based on Tim Smiths recipe, was cut today. Surprisingly, it is perfect on all accounts. It has a perfect texture, flavor, appearance, and smell compared to other Emmentals I have had. In fact, it has a real nice subtle, smooth flavor that may be better than some I have had. I am shocked!
This reminds me of my golf game...even during a bad day, one good shot makes you want to come back out next weekend.....
