How I adore experimentation! I've been experimenting with both lavendar and fennel pollen to replicate the Bermuda Triagle Goat cheese that Cypress Grove produces--what an interesting combination. In the meantime, I decided to add some of the lavendar to my Edam--using the recipe on this site. Added the dried lavendar before draining the whey at stage 11 of the recipe. This left enough lavendar to remain in the whey for the 30 minute bath before pressing. A perfect cheese to experiment with! I'll update with progress and tastings.
