No, the narrower mold is still something that hasn’t happened yet. I did go looking in my local home centre for a suitable piece of piping I could have drilled, but they are currently undergoing refurbishing, everything is topsy turvy and the only pipe the right size I could find was for drains. I’ll go looking again once their redecorating is finished and things are back to normal.
In the meantime, the cheshire that was supposed to last till Christmas, didn’t! We were going to see my daughter and her family and I wanted to take her a wedge, so the Cheshire copped it.
Considering how difficult it had been to get a good knit on this, I was surprised at what a nice creamy texture it has. It looks crumbly in the photo, but that’s my my failure to cut straight through rather than any fault on the part of the cheese. A nice, ‘everyday’ type of cheese, not too strong-tasting, that I can feed to my infant granddaughters without their Mum getting upset about Nana giving them ‘weird stuff’!
Meanwhile the remaining half has gone back into the cave to age out a bit longer. Hopefully it will see in 2014.
This past weekend I tried a Wensleydale, which I divided into three after cheddaring to produce plain, w/cranberries and/orange versions to hopefully grace the Christmas table. They’re in the press at the moment. I’ll post photos when they’re out.
