I have an aversion to the hospital where I have to get mine done, so I know that's why I keep "forgetting" to make the appointment. But I've got to get over it & go! Noting good can come from waiting. And they really aren't that bad.

I have to go with my mom for a liver biopsy Monday morning. They think the chemo may have triggered an autoimmune reaction in her body because her liver isn't really working. That should inspire me to call if nothing else does!!!

I hope yours went well. The first one is the worst one!

Parmesan Cheese



Speaking of Milk......I think I mentioned that I went to learn how to make cheese from a friend of mine. Well, learn is probably the wrong word for it....watch is more appropriate. He decided we were making parmesan cheese today.


And if there is any spare milk falling from udders, ship it my way.


We started with 30 litres of milk. It's way too early in the morning for me to convert but that would be somewhere between 7 - 8 gallons of milk.











We would need a rather large pot. There were certainly enough stirrers in the kitchen that day!






To make cheese, we would need calcium chloride….to add some calcium content back to homogenized milk.






Rennet....to separate out the curds from the whey.







The correct sort of bacteria to form parmesan/hard cheese.






And Lipase. This enzyme is used to break down the fat and convert it to fatty acids. This process of converting fat to fatty acids also releases the aroma that we so associate with cheese. Lipase is what helps form the texture and sharpness in cheese. During the pasteurization process, natural lipase is destroyed; which is why we have to add it back during the cheesemaking process.







We have to add the ingredients in a certain order.....





















.......and with vigorous stirring and heating to the right temperature.....













.......and leaving the milk to settle for the right amount of time.













Yeah. Let’s just say that we were chatting so much and too busy on the social front that we just stuffed up at nearly every step. The only thing we got right was adding the ingredients in the right order. But feel free to read the recipe.






Eventually, you’re meant to slice the curd up into small chunks.







Leave it settle some more and then strain out the solids.






We transferred the solids to a container lined with cheesecloth.












It needs to be pressed down to remove the excess water.







And after about 4 hours of social activity....er....cheesemaking, we ended up with this block.





Parmesan takes about 9 – 12 months of enzyme activity. So, I won’t be tasting this cheese anytime soon.



But it was a really fun day!

Cheese is all made the same way. Apparently it depends on the type of Cheese Enzyme you put in as to what type of cheese you get. We put in Type C....

From what my friend told me, after we had taken out the "cheese" grains from the whey, if we added vinegar to the whey, we would have been able to then get some ricotta. I expect that there was more fat content in the whey that would have reacted with the acid and then precipatated out to form more 'cheese'.


My friend said that after he pressed it overnight, he soaked it in brine. We'll find out in 6 months how it's progressing.

It was fun! And check out the distraction we had whilst making cheese....hence why we missed steps out, overheated the liquid....



We decided that we needed to make gelati as well. So we also made some lemon gelati whilst the milk was heating up. My friend has a refrigerated icecream maker....





Naturally, we needed to graze. The cheese on the plate is parmesan that my friend had made last year.





The other spot we had was waiting for the curds and whey. We decided to have lunch. Home made pizza; so we were also distracted by the making of the pizza base and the chopping of ingredients.
















Naturally, we needed a salad to go with it. We reduced balsamic vinegar for the dressing.






We brought some mangos. It seemed like a much better idea to turn it into gelati instead.






We were just a little distracted from the cheesemaking.
