On Sunday, May 24, I started a wheel of Stilton. I haven’t made many blues cheeses so I don’t have much experience to draw on. I was following the recipe from Cheesemaking.com and it was a ton of steps. It was past midnight before I went to bed, good thing it was a holiday!
Anyway, This post is to track the dates for aging and piercing of the wheels. They look great so far, so I will add a picture soon.
June 28th we need to pierce it.
August 23rd or so it will be ready to eat.
By the end of August I was ready to try the Stilton. It wasn’t as creamy as I hoped but it had a great taste. I hope to remake it soon.
