ugly cheese

Cheese making mistakes result in ugly, but hopefully tasty, cheeses. The cheese one the right is a cheddar that the cheese cloth got bunched up under in the press. This caused a slight dent in the cheese. The cheese on the right is a Muenster that the cheese press was uneven causing the slanted top. I also forgot to add calcium chloride, an optional ingredient that helps create firmer curds. This caused the curds to separate when I stirred in the salt. Live and learn. I'm sure they will both taste just fine.
