Madness?

I had a wild thought last night, as you sometimes do in bed.
Has anyone tried making a smoky cheese by mixing liquid hickory smoke into the milk before adding the rennett?

:wink:

Soz, couldn't resist.

I don't actually know what goes ito smoke powder but I would assume that it should work in some way. The only thing I can think of is if the smoke powder stops the curds forming properly.

On brined cheeses you could always add it to the brine bath.

Those little plastic coated cylinders of smoked cheese you can get in supermarkets are made by passing smoke through the milk before it is renetted. Any experiments you perform have to be better than those things :)
Vegetarian food: fine as a side.
Vegetarians: not bad, but they don't crisp up very well.
Vegans: should go back to Vega.
