Camembert Update


After one week of ripening at about 90% humidity and 11C (52F), my Cams are progressing wonderfully! Look at the white bloomy mould that is growing on them already! That's the Penicillium Candidum at work. :)

I'm continuing to flip and wipe them twice daily for another week, then I'll be wrapping them until the New Year! :)

Camembert Tutorial (Video)

Hi Everyone!

Since this past summer, I've enjoyed making videos on my main blog (Rain's Garden) so much, that I thought it might be fun to make a video tutorial of how I make my cheeses. Today I'm going to link a video on how to make Camembert. The whole process took me the entire day but I condensed the video down to under 30 minutes.

I encourage EVERYONE out there to do some cheese making! If you don't want to start big, start with making yogurt, or ricotta, or even sour cream! I'll be making videos of all of my cheese making from now on to share.

I'm also going to re-vamp this blog a little bit over the next few months to better organize it!

If you want to have a better view, when you play the video, you can click on the "YouTube" icon to watch it on You Tube, enjoy!!! :)
