We’ll be adding salt to cheese both by sprinkling it into the curd, onto the wheel, and by immersing pressed wheels into a salty brine solution. Each method brings different positive qualities to the cheese. Sometimes you can choose the method, but in the beginning it is best to stick to what is recommended. FLAVORING, COLORING, AND OTHER ADDITIONS Many things can be added to cheese to add and enhance flavor or to change the visual appeal of the final product. Purists — both those that eat cheese and those that make cheese — might cringe at some of these additions, but many people love them, myself included.

Let the curds drain for 5 minutes. Salt and Press: Gather the curds up in the cloth and squeeze gently to eliminate any extra whey. Open the cloth and stir in the salt. Gather three corners of the cloth tightly together and as close to the curd ball as possible. Hold the three corners in one hand, and with the other hand take the fourth corner and wrap it snuggly around the other three, as close to the curd as possible. ” Place the curd bundle onto an inverted plate set inside of a large bowl or in the sink.

Follow the instructions on the bottle and remember that very little is needed. Herbs and spices can be added directly to the cheese curd after it has drained and before it is pressed. Infusions — liquid teas made by simmering herbs, spices, or other additions — are added to the milk before it is coagulated or to the 27 curd after it is drained. Successful combinations with cheese include cumin, hot pepper flakes, fenugreek, fennel seed, caraway, and lavender. Let your creativity be your guide, but be sure to use superior quality seasonings from reputable sources, as contaminants can be introduced.
