My first Stilton attempt
« on: May 08, 2010, 12:01:53 AM »
Opened my first attempt at Stilton today, mixed results, not really creamy enough as I suspected as i didn't think I added enough cream. I have 2 more in maturation. I will post pics of them later

Nice veining--did you scrape the rind off? How long did you let it age? If the taste was good for you, it's a go. Stiltons normally have a crumpled brown exterior, with varied colors. There's a world of variations out there, and we all use our own fingerprint to produce a cheese that tastes good to us.
Darn, another cheese meltdown--ahh, perfect fondue.

Hi, no didn't scrape the rind, I let it air dry for a few days so i guess it stopped the outside becoming too blue
