Welcome to the Fair, July 27th-August 1st

It has been a great week at the Weld County fair making cheese for everyone to try.  Our booth was set up as a demonstration of what cheeses you can make at home.

Ibores – (eye-bor-rays) Second Try – October 25th, 2015

This is a quick post to mark the date, turned 50 this weekend and the second make of Ibores. I made Ibores in May this year and it was very fun to eat. It is made with goat cheese and rubbed with smoked Paprika and olive oil. The wheel was coming out great, every few days I  applied more paprika and olive oil.

It aged for several more weeks and it was still looking good.

I sliced it in half to test it since it had aged for several months and it was coming along nicely.  Finally, I threw it into a seal-a-meal bag as it was showing signs of drying out.
