Inspired by the video I toasted the rind of a Hispanico I made.
Made the cheese: 20131222
Toasted it and bagged it: 20140106
Opened and tasted today: 20140817
The toasted rind was lost on a poorly executed cheese. The base cheese turned out bitter with a crumbly texture. There is a little roasty flavor, but I find it overshadowed by the bitter flavor. I will try this again, if only because it looks cool!
Oh, and I made this without a proper press. Don't press overnight with weights that can move!
