Chevre second try
« on: May 29, 2012, 11:40:45 PM »
Over the weekend, I made another batch of chevre from one gallon of goats milk (Trader Joe's - not ultra-pasturized) using the packet from NEC with rennet added. I kept this one warm with an electric heating pad, for about 16 hours. After draining in a muslin bag for a couple of hours, I transferred the cheese to the small forms that came with the goat cheese kit from NEC. After several more hours, I turned the cheeses in the forms and gently pressed down to flatten them.
Today (2 days later) I tasted the cheese, and am happier with this second attempt. It has more flavor, and is holding its shape better for slicing/crumbling. The picture is of the cheese on a cracker with a little of my neighbor's honey! Yum!

Nice looking texture.
