Having a 7 month old who has just figured out how to crawl doesn’t leave a whole heap of time to monitor your cheese.
It’s now 16th July, a good 3 months since I made the cheese. I happened to head into the summer house / cheese room / dumping ground for non child friendly furniture, and caught a whiff of something deep and meaty. Opening the cheese fridge I was confronted by 6 pungent forgotten cheeses!
Out of curiosity I opened them up one by one, and found them perfectly soft in the middle, nicely textured, and most importantly a strong, boozy flavour with a hint of caramel!
Now a fridge which had previously been overrun with expressed milk and baby friendly food is full of smelly feet cheese. Hurray!
