Today I met with success in creating Cheddar Curd as per your Cheesemaking Made Easy publication. Being a farm boy from dairy country along the St Lawrence River in New York State I often watched the old cheesemakers at our local milk plant and always hoped they would hand me a bag of curd. This always happened if we were right there at the right time. Tonight we enjoyed some of the taste from the past 50 plus years. The next batch will go to a mold and curing hopefully it will in time result in some good old sharp Yankee Cheddar. Thank you again, Sincerely, Walter A Halkins, TX
