Lancashire with bonus butter

Postby jenny_haddow » Fri Apr 13, 2007 11:32 am

Here's a shot of the Lancashire cheese I made for Easter....

I added a pint of double cream which gave it a lovely rich flavour with the sharp background taste of the Lancashire.

The cream had been frozen so had granulated, but as the temperature of the milk increased it blended in with the help of a balloon whisk. Just before I added the rennet I noticed a layer of yellow fat floating on the milk which I skimmed off. When this solidified in the dish I found I had inadvertantly made some butter, or something pretty close. I used it in a cake to good effect the other day, and needless to say, the cheese has all gone.

Hi Jenny, I am new to this forum. I live in Australia and would love to have your recipe for Lancashire Cheese it looks great. I have had difficulty finding a recipe apart from one which requires 50 gallons of milk! I would appreciate your help. Thanks, :) Pat

Thanks for the kind words, I made that one a long time ago, about time I did another!
The recipe is in the hard cheese section and is Franco's 7 day Lancashire cheese. I just added the cream because it needed using, but I have made them without it.
