My first attempt at making hard cheese!
My Christmas gift to myself is a new cheese press! I have been making soft cheeses, yogurts and ice creams with my delicious goats' milk but I needed this piece of equipment to press the curds into a hard condensed wheel. A very simple machine, really. No electrical cord! After a series of pressing at different pressures I have my first wheel of Cheddar!!!! So exciting!! I will use a rub of salt to help it dry; then coat it in wax and place it in a cool place (my wine cooler) for 4-12 weeks!
