Do we have Camembert as Washed Rind?
« on: July 06, 2012, 03:10:37 AM »
HI

I think here we have Camembert which is normally classified as Soft Cheese with Natural Rind.

But here we have Camembert whose rind is gently scraped off and then it is dipped in Calvados (Apple Brandy).

This results in to the orange rind on Camembert.

Calvados is a part of process in forming the cheese so it should not be taken as ADDED INGREDIENTS/FLAVOUR.

IS it really soft cheese with washed rind or Natural rind Cheese? Do we have camembert as washed rind?
Can you provide some ideas about possibility of Camemberts with washed rind?

camembert is always bloomy rind. There's more to it than bacteria. It's a historical consistency thing.
Taking an extended leave (until 2015) from the forums to build out my farm and dairy. Please e-mail or PM if you need anything.

Can a do some washing with PLA morge once bloomy rind is well established? when is the optimal time to wash to get some stinky notes along with ammonia and mushroom\earthyness.

I got a pla brine ripening in the fridge, I guess we shell find out soon... :)
