Cheese smoke from the other night

Discussion in 'Cheese' started by bmwrtmike, Jan 2, 2016.

  1. I was running low on my favorite cheese and decided that it was time to do something about it. 14 pounds of 5yr cheddar with cherry smoke. About 6 hours in the smoke.

    Fine looking cheese smoke.  [​IMG]

    When I saw the date on your vac wrap, I realized it was smoked on my birthday.  I guess that means that I should check the post office for my present.  [​IMG]

    That Tillamook 5 Year Cheddar is great by itself. It must be fantastic smoked!
     
  15. It is amazing smoked. My favorite by far.

    Thanks for the birthday wish Mike.  I'm still checking the mail.  [​IMG]

    As Bear said "That's some great color you got on your cheese".

    Is the smoked cheese freezable? For how long?
     
  18. No. I wouldn't do it. Vacuum sealed will last a long time though.

    I wondered the same thing a while ago and did a google on it.  (While the cheese will stay safe and edible for cooking, the freezing will change the cheese at a molecular level and make it crumbly).

    Mike is correct about the vacuum sealing by the way.  I have kept smoked cheese vac sealed for a year in the fridge with no apparent deterioration nor loss of flavor.
