So in the last cheese thread the WIDF accused me of being from Dorset although I have never been to the UK other than flying over it to get to Europe. Not knowing much about the UK, the word stuck in my mind, and today I saw a Dorset cheddar in my local cheese shop, aged 16 months, on sale for $8.99 a pound.

It's really nice. It cracks into big pieces as I slice it, so these big chunks fall off the knife, exposing the stinky cheese juice inside the crevices. The telltale crunch of a well aged cheese is reassuring.

This contrasts with the last thing I tried from Wisconsin, a "cheddar", also an impulse buy at $9.99 a pound. It was bright orange, smooth, utterly dry and plasticky, a clean inoffensive industrial odor, and no depth of flavor. It was almost indistinguishable from generic Kraft colby, aside from an almost imperceptible sharpness that I guess, to them, makes it worthy of the name cheddar. Surprisingly I think it was said to be a 12 month cheddar. Wonder what preservatives they use to make it age like that.

I also got a small block of Buontavola Provolone, which, needless to say, doesn't resemble Wisconsin "provolone" in the slightest. I'll probably save it for after dinner to finish off with the dregs of my bottle of spanna.

What is /cheese/ eating today?

I have some news for you, Eddie.
Milk is bought and sold on the commodities market by the pound.

I am going to make about 250,000 lbs of 'cheddar' tomorrow. In the middle of a Wisconsin cornfield.
We're going to run a special vat of 'Maple Bacon Cheddar'.
My body is ready.

How do they weigh it? It's a liquid, when you put it on the scale wouldn't it spill all over the place?
>>
>>7059561
they freeze it first obviously
>>
>>7059561
They get a container and weigh it, add the milk and subtract the weight of the container.
