It is the first snow of the Winter Season in Oklahoma! My wife said it was time to Cold Smoke some Christmas Cheese & Smoked Almonds for Holiday Gifts again this year. Two of our favorites and that of our family and friends! Featured are Sharp Cheddar and Pepper Jack. 14 Baby Loafs @ 3 lbs. each, sliced into four sections totaling 42 lbs. and making 56 individual gifts. Using Pecan, Apple, and a touch of Cherry, temps never exceeded 40* F. The blocks placed into the horizontal chamber of my Pit yielded a superior color to those placed in the large 7' vertical chamber. Now vacuum sealed and following the traditional 2 week resting period, they will be ready for sampling on 12.21. Thinly sliced on a Wheat Thin, a good dog by your side, while sitting in front of the fireplace - makes Christmas very contemplative and special. The pics below should tell the story...
