I am making my first cheese on the new press! I am using the book “Artisan Cheese making at Home” by Mary Karlin. The recipe I am making this time is the Honey-rubbed Montasio, and it sounds delightful! Nutty, smooth, and rubbed in honey, mmmmm! And since I had my new handy, dandy press to try out, I took some pictures. I will have to ad and addendum after the cheese is out and aged 🙂
Anyway, here are the pictures. You have to get the book to have the recipe (sorry, copy-wright and all that) but this might entice you to buy it. It really is a good book. I am using all raw goats milk, so it will be a bit different, but hopefully very good. I do love having such wonderful dairy goats!
Later I will update with stages of the cheese, but it has to sit and drain for 8 hours, so I don’t have them now.
