Today- farmhouse cheddar and whey ricotta
 
Today I used three gallons of fresh goat's milk and made an easy farmhouse cheddar, and used the whey to make ricotta. The farmhouse cheddar is in the press right now.

Right now, I have in my cheese cave:

Pepper Jack
Colby
Gouda
and more colby (that's been our favorite so far)

Last weekend, I served up some of those three cheeses, and they were a big hit. I don't think anyone even guessed it was goat's milk. I need to make more chevre and feta with next week's milk.

Right now I only have a Cheddar in the cave. I did have two big wheels of Camembert that were just about ready to eat and then I realized the other day when I was checking on them that they were infested with flying bugs. Not sure what kind. Doesn't really matter does it? Nasty as hell. I threw them into the outside garbage can. Very disappointing.

I have no idea how this happened. Where they came from but it worries me for future soft cheese endeavors. Hard waxed cheeses, no problem, but I think I'll stay away from the soft, aged ones for a while.

This ever happen to you, Yoop?

Maggot cheese is a delicacy in some parts of the world you didnt have to throw them out.

Apparently not in my particular corner. :( I just got done cleaning out the trashcan that the cheese had melted into. I'm still gagging a little from the violently nauseating smell.

Next time throw that bad cheese in the freezer until garbage day. Saves your stomach from those nasty garbage cans during the heat of summer. :D

Yea, I knew I had made a huge mistake the second it plopped on the bottom of the empty trashcan. My only thought at the time was that I must get this out of my house and hands instantly or I will be cleaning up vomit along with cheese and flies.

I waxed my cheddar today, does that make me as cool as yooper?

That sounds so dirty.
