Some months ago, I wanted to try out the cheese press I built.
I found a great site for supplies and super-specific, descriptive tutorials/recipes with LOTS of photos, New England Cheesemaking Supply Company.
I made their colby cheese, which turned out so good, by the way. Aside from having lots of pans to wash, it was actually easy to make my own hard cheese. I was amazed. Even the kids liked it.
I think the best part for me, next to slicing into the wax and serving it, tasting it, was simply holding the waxed cheese in my hand, turning it over, marveling at it. Patting it. It felt so good, smooth and perfect and solid. Small pleasures are the best, right?
I was very excited when the folks at New England Cheesmaking Company got in touch and offered to sponsor a product giveaway for our readers.
Not everyone has a press for hard cheeses, and not everyone is going to be in the mood for making their own mozzarella, but who can resist:
Not moi, for certain sure.
