My Rustic Blue
« on: October 05, 2009, 07:57:56 PM »
Here's a pic of my blue at 10 days old. I think I would rip the crud a little smaller next time but the recipe did call for 1" pieces..
Any comments ??

Rather interesting looking cheeses. I am not a blues fan but it looks to me (granted no experience here but for one Gorgonzola) like the curds may have been slightly over cooked. They didn't meld much did they?

I think they have character though - rather statuesque!  ;)

Hmmm my cooking temp was bang on what the recipe asked for and time etc
It holds together very well but looks like it will fall apart .
must be some good air holes in it. It could make a intresting cheese.

As long as it holds together it should grow well.
