Camembert tasting day

So the camembert is finally ready for eating. Unwrapped out the fridge and so far so good it looks like camembert should.

The texture was perfect, firm but softer and creamy in the middle. 

The flavour also turned out really well a delicious combination of creaminess and saltiness. It went down a treat on a cracker with a little bit of the apple cheese paste. We were really pleased with the results and feel that it easily compares with the good quality bought stuff. So now we are planning our next batch - it will be a double batch for a start! Maybe with a mix of blue vein cheese in it or some herbs....
We really are getting into the swing of this cheesemaking. Some cream cheese was made the other day too, it tasted amazing and much better than the bought stuff. Cream cheese is also very easy to make so we will probably be eating a little more of it.

Whats being made at your house? 

Have a great weekend everyone.


  1. That cheese looks delicious.

    I have just starting canning applesauce today. About a month earlier than normal, but oh so tasty.

    1. Thankyou! Yum applesauce, i love preserving. I'm so glad there seems to be a little community of preservers in the blogging world. I'm looking forward to summer and a whole lot of new recipes!

  2. You made that cheese? Amazing!!

    1. Yes we did! Me and the better half made it during our holidays. It has been on the too do list for ages and is heaps of fun. More cheese to come!
