It has been a while since I have made cheese. Every time I do, I am so surprised watching the curds and whey separate. All that is left is delicious cheese without any colorings, additives, etc. From 2 gallons of milk to 2 pounds of delicious farm cheddar. No!!!! Orange is NOT the natural color of cheese! Will need to wait at least 1 month, before eating can begin! Cheese is all about patience, it is not a process that can be hurried.
